This is worth a visit - even if you just check it out from the pavement. Incredible to imagine the effort that went into this. You can go inside for a small fee.

You can pay a small fee to go inside, or you can admire for free from the outside.The stone steps and walkways have marbles inlaid. The house itself is gorgeous. Others may not use the word...but it's not about the beer cans and pops tops...More

If you're in the area it is worth a stop as it is not every day you get to see a house covered in beer cans but I wouldn't make a special trip. Interesting and different.

How many other beer can houses will you ever see? If you are a fan of kitschy folk art, like beer, or simply have a good sense of humor, this little house will be a delightful visit.

Was sceptical at first but once we saw it.... Wonderful piece of recycled artwork and all from beer cans.

Just pulled up outside the house to have a look, didn't have time to actually visit. Maybe next time but there is a small charge.

This is a quirky but fun place to visit. Won't take very long, but you'll gain insight into what a man with an odd hobby can do over a lifetime of beer-drinking!

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
