7. Don’t poke the Octopus in the eye!

Okay, so after you wander through the Streets of Yesterday, you meander to an area called, “The Heritage of the Sea.” It starts with some pictures of different kinds of whales and a little model of a giant octopus taking down a whale. However, the House on the Rock is just NOT that boring. Suddenly, you walk through a door and see this:

That whale is taller than the Statue of Liberty when standing on its tail!

The room is 4 floors of seeing this… display…. from all angles. The walls are filled with model ships and other nautical themed stuff. Fortunately, there is a bypass for those that don’t really care to see all 4 levels of boats, knots, and other sea related items.  Sadly, Alex Jordan passed away just before this room was completed. There is a picture of him standing in the mouth of the whale.
