First of all if you are coming here, you should do a little background research to see what this man was all about. He was very odd. However, he may have tapped into a long lost science that has only recently caught the attention of a larger audience. If you are a curious person, come here. Dont forget to buy the set of self-authored works in the gift shop, as a few things are only available there, and not on Amazon.

The story behind this attraction was completely unexpected to me. I had never heard the story of this place and how it came to be. The guide was very good and had a lot of details about this man's life and how he created these pieces. It's definitely a good way to spend a few hours.

I went to the castle excited to see something quirky, and I was not disappointed. I like that they take you through with a guide first so you understand what you are seeing, and then they let you wander on your own. My group's guide was great. The tickets are a bit pricey, but it was a really cool experience.

This was a very cool place to see and good for all ages. It was a very interesting history lesson and amazing to see what one guy built all by himself.

Have visited the castle many times and absolutely recommend it. We take all of our visitors there if we have the time because it is a drive for us. When it's extremely hot I would suggest going early in the morning because little to no shade.
