I was very pleasantly surprised by this Arts and Crafts ' Mansion' close to the University and only 5 minutes drive from downtown Flagstaff. The guided tour of the interior was excellent, our guide knowledgeable and entertaining. The beauty of the house is contained in the original design features which have been retained since its construction in 1904. The furnishings... More

We learned a lot about Flagstaff history when visiting the Riordan Mansion. The volunteer tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the family and the area. My husband and I were glad we stopped here during our visit to Flagstaff. If you're in the military, make sure you ask for the discount.

The Riordan Mansion is a true treasure! I had long heard about this place and am so glad I finally got to experience it. It was the highlight of our visit to Flagstaff. Elena was our tour guide, and one could not ask for a more knowledgeable or engaging host. She provided a well-rounded view of this unique residence turned... More

With LOUIS B. as our guide, we relived the mansion life. He was very in touch with the history, and made the visit very enjoyable. I live here, and I'll tour it again, just 'cause.

My wife and I went here because it was listed as a Flagstaff attraction and we had never been there. The guided tour incorporates some interesting history about the area and the mansion itself. The experience was good enough that we will probably revisit this venue in the future. While most adults should find the tour interesting, I think it... More

Wow, if you love Arts and Crafts style you will love this place. Big log cabin from the outside, sophisticated, modern 1930s home on the inside. Love the lines, inventive ways to house two well known local families. Amy the tour guide was knowledgeable but stiff and formal. Good gift shop. Outside tour is free, inside tour was arouind 10...

Visited Riordan Mansion while on a tour to NAU in April 2013. It gave a good overview of the history and development of Flagstaff. The mansion is large and nicely preserved. If you like craftsman architecture, you'll enjoy seeing the mansion. It is located on the edge of the university.
