Suggestion to visitors. Make a reservation. The Staff was nice about getting us in but loudly said we should have made a reservation. I believe it is worth seeing. The Price was reasonable. Kind of dark in the mansion. They have a little gift shop and the grounds are beautiful. Make sure you look over the grounds and take pics... More

We took a tour which lasted about an hour. The fee for the tour is $10 per person and we felt it was well worth it. We had a terrific docent who gave us lots of great history about the mansion and the Riordan family who built the mansion.

This mansion is sort of like a huge duplex joined by a common room in the middle. Our guide was excellent--a fount of knowledge about the house and the Riordans. The original furnishings are in the house which makes it very interesting. We purchased a combo ticket that included the Pioneer Museum. You might want to consider doing the same... More

Unique mansion in Flagstaff, AZ built by two brothers, Timothy and Michael Riordan, who married two sisters, and built two separate houses conjoined by one common area. The brothers built a large lumber company and helped build the economy of northern Arizona in the late 19th-early 20th century. Mansion is a state historical park surrounded now by Northern Arizona University.... More

I have wanted to tour for decades and finally made it. Fascinating history and so well preserved. The beginnings of the mill town of Flagstaff are well explained in the home of two of the Riordan brothers and their families. Admired and respected and good citizens. Flagstaff owes them much for what it became.

This house and grounds are worth your going out of your way to see. Only rarely are original furnishings available as they are in this unique home. The quality of the tour is exceptional owing much to the talents of our tour guide. Her affection for the house and furnishings are obvious. I learned a lot about the early days... More

I got there just as the last tour was entering so I chose to just walk around the exterior. There are informational signs all around so it is still a worthwhile thing to do. Fascinating structure with an equally fascinating history. Would like to take the tour sometime. The young lady at the front office was very gracious about letting... More

Very well done preservation of Riordan home. Tour is excellent, informative. Not good for little ones though, this is more of an adult tour.

Thank Jak-cra
