Upside Down Houses Around The World

Nov 28, 2015 0 comments

A clichéd yet popular tourist attraction that never fails to amuse is an upside down house, with a faithfully reproduced exterior and interior with inverted furniture, doorways and windows. These houses can be found all over the world either as part of an amusement park or a tourist attraction on its own. Let us look at some of the best made upside down houses.


WonderWorks is a museum and learning center focused on science exhibits, located in numerous places in the US — Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Orlando, Florida; Pigeon Forge, Tennessee; Panama City Beach, Florida; and Syracuse, New York. With the exception of New York, each location features an upside down building that appears to have crashed on to the earth with telltale signs of cracks and wreckage. The building is very well done on the outside.

Haus steht Kopf, Tirol, Austria

Opened in 2012, this upside down house is a popular attraction in the Austrian village of Tirol. Inside the disorienting house all the furniture is stuck to the ceiling, including a VW Beetle in the garage that looks it could crash to the floor at any moment.

The Upside Down House in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is a two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot house built by two Polish immigrants who originally came to Niagara Falls in 2004. All the rooms in the house — the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, etc.— are upside down and full furniture and other details mounted on the ceiling, with the floor significantly angled.
