The Riordan Mansion State Park is the "duplex" mansion of the Riordan family. The two living units are connected by a gathering space that was used by both families. Park employees and volunteers give excellent tours which highlight the mansion, the history of these pioneer families, and facts about the furniture, etc.

Nothing to dislike about this tour.As a homeschool mother,it was a perfect tour,to teach both Arizona history and how a family lived from another time.Do be aware though,that they were concerned about our toddler.Toddlers CANNOT run around or touch anything here,so if you think you're little ones won't behave,don't bring them.

As I said in the title I've been on a lot of these world wide and while this is grand like you would expect a mansion tour to be it was very interesting. The mansion is actually a duplex. Two brothers married two sisters and built identical residences with a common 1,000 square foot room adjoining them in the middle... More

Great place to see how the well to do lived back in the late1800s-early1900s in early Flagstaff, very well maintained residence, tours depend on if enough people show up in a given time frame, guides seem to be knowlegable of the history of the place

We had an excellent hour-long tour of this house. If you like arts and crafts furniture, you will love this house. The staff here are great and our tour guide was very informative.

What a hidden treat. Built with a view of the city growing below it, Riordan Mansion now finds itself almost lost in the midst of Flagstaff. It is still a quiet get a way from the bustle of city life and a step back in time. The guides are great and there is more than enough to see of the... More

If you have some time in Flagstaff, this is a worthwhile stop. The Riordan Mansion tour is about an hour long ($10/pp). You'll get a guided tour by knowledgeable staff of the Riordan brother's home -- actually two connected (identical) large homes built in 1904, by Michael and Timothy Riordan. The brothers played a key role in the development of... More

We like old mansions, so we were eager to give this a look. We were 5 minutes late for the last tour and the lady quickly gave us the quiet short version of what we missed & added us to the ongoing tour. History of the family was very interesting. Mansion is unique and very interesting to us. Staff was... More
