Ridiculously hoaky! Drive by and keep right on driving! There is nothing at this place that is worth seeing.

Nice place to stop and do a tour, but super expensive. If you have balance issues or are in a wheelchair, it is not accessible.

My hubby always plans some fun stops along our Harley ride and this one was a hit. Whether you believe or not, this place DOES make you wonder. Just go with it! Have fun. We sure did.

This place is located along the main highway on the way to Glacier National park. Very interesting place to visit. Great people that work there and a great experience for people of all ages. It's an experience you'll remember for a long time!

Tour was good. Place is almost borderline cheesy with tchotchkes everywhere. Good for kids. Everyone in the tour seemed to enjoy it.

This is advertised as the house of Mystery. Its really just a tilted house thats fun to walk in and gets you disoriented. The grounds around are very pleasant and pretty. This is a cool and fun place to visit in the heat of summer....More

There is not a lot of walking, however, the walking you do have to do is downhill and the house you stand in is slanted, on a hill, making it difficult to stand up for anyone with good knees!

It's at 7800 Hwy 2 East, on the left side of the road as you leave Columbia Falls. Easily visible from the highway.
