Love this house just amazing. Self guided but very nice people there to answer any question one might have. As well as you are allowed to rake pictures.

The walk through of the house had so much historic beauty. I am happy there are supporters to keep sites like this around.

My husband, myself and our adult daughter visited The Flavel House Museum. It is on a large corner lot with beautiful flowering trees and plantings. There was a gift shop in the Carriage House on the property where the welcome center is. That is where we purchased tickets and viewed a short video about the founder and his family. It... More

Beautiful house with lots of information about the house and the people who lived there. Self guided tour, which is nice to take your time and read everything at your own pace.

Great history, and beautifully kept mansion. It would have been nice to have access to the turret. When we stayed at the Riverwalk Motel, we got free tickets, but an additional donation would be in order.

It was really great to see the history of the area and house. The house is wonderful and it is a self guided tour which was nice. The historical society did a really nice job. Thanks!

There were four of us and because of time constraints we did not opt for the film , which I have seen before.This house is so interesting, and there are... More

The Flavel museum is the Captains former home, it's worth the visit and you'll find some friendly volunteers in there that most likely knows everything about the place and Astoria. I met an older woman in there that claimed to be a second generation Astorian (I think she was 90+ years old), but absolutely AMAZING to talk to. The museum... More

The history of the family and this home is fascinating. The home is absolutely gorgeous. I am rating it as average because after being at all of the other museums in the area I was really hoping for some more information about the flavel family. There was some information and again the house is gorgeous. I would have just liked... More

Had just planned on staying in Astoria as a girl's weekend, but had to see the Flavel House since it is one block from where we were staying, the lovely, restful Clementine's Bed and Breakfast. I'm a hug fan of historic homes (with my own website ColumbiaHistoricHomes.com), so it was nice to see some historic luxury. The introduction film was... More
