The House on The Rock~Journal 7 Tribute to Nostalgia & Music of Yesterday

All pictures are from our vacation.

Tour One~Section Two

Tribute to Nostalgia

In 1995, the Tribute to Nostalgia was opened to the public.  This section exhibits several different types of transportation.  One of the cars were made specifically for Alex Jordan Jr.

 


Music of Yesterday

Music of Yesterday was opened to the visitors in 1974.  This sections houses many instrumental displays that Alex Jordan Jr. collected.  All you need to do is insert your tokens and then sit back and enjoy the music.  The Blue Room and The Red Room seem to be the most popular ones.  I found all of them delightful; some were exquisite with chandeliers hanging from the ceilings.  Others I was in awe with all the details and the movement of the eyes and eyebrows of the mannequin people humored me.  Some of the instruments actually play while others such as the strings and wood winds definitely did not.  In this section one can take advantage of the benches to rest and enjoy the show.
