Our family thoroughly enjoyed our tour today!!! Definitely don't miss this if you like history, architecture, and/or beautiful houses! Highly recommend!!!
If the tour guides ask you to leave or give you dirty looks it's probably because your child is an annoying brat that you don't attempt to teach manners to. There is a lot of red ropes and things that are not to be touched because it is historical and they are trying to preserve them so the house can... More
Today My family and I tried to visit the Mansion. We arrived 45 minutes early and waited for the tour to start which starts on the hour. I have a small 2 year old, the Tour Guide(male) saw this and never said anything to us regarding him while waiting. We bought our tickets and walked around grounds returning at the... More
This tour is worthwhile because of what the Riordan's accomplished in building 2 very large and identical Craftsman houses joined by a large common area that both families shared. There is a self-guided walking tour outside the house worth the time and the tour of the house is worth the admission. I heartily recommend this tour to anyone who loves... More
If you get the chance make sure you visit the Mansion House, a perfectly preserved house from 1900's. Learn the history of the house and how the Riorden's help build the town. A superb tour every hour.
grounds have short but interesting walking trail; visitor center is in old garage and small but interesting; mansion tour is about one hour; it is interesting and i enjoyed it; further details at arizona state parks website; $5 per person
While the Riordan Mansion is only a five-acre park, you are immediately transported into a quieter, simpler, and more noble time by the cool Ponderosa pine trees, the beautiful turn of last century architecture, and the competent and knowledgeable tour guides. We were greeted by a ranger who also happened to be a history major at nearby NAU, and he... More
This mansion was built by two brothers in the logging business in Flagstaff. The mansion actually is two separate homes, which are mirror images of one another and are joined by a center game/family room, so that the two families could spend time together. One side has been restored with original furniture and the other side is a museum. The... More
A nice way to spend a little time looking back into the past in a surprisingly wonderful home. If you like antiques and old homes, check out this home (about 13,000 square feet in total). Filled with much of the original furniture it's an amazing home. The guided tour adds a lot to you experience and you will learn about... More
I recently visited the Mansion with 4 boys under the age of nine (I am their grandmother) and had a most enjoyable experience. Like the earlier reviewer, I had been to the mansion with two of the boys last year to take a tour, and was discouraged (read: basically refused) by a female ranger from taking my grandsons on the...
