“Beautiful Historic Mansion”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a must see while visiting Astoria. Beautifully preserved, I believe mostly all original furnishings. It is a self-guided tour in which you may take photos but no flash.

“Great place, bad hosts”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

House itself was great. Staff was not very friendly. The ticket office is a block away, which doesn't make any sense, and even though I bought the city pass (to see three different museums), I was told I had to still go up to the gift shop to get a ticket. All they ended up doing was punching my city pass. Couldn't they have just dome that at the house. Anyway, stupid ticketing system but great piece of architecture.

“nice house museum”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

this is a lovely museum home with interesting furnishings. Worth a stop if you are in Astoria and interested in antiques. It does have journal from one of the owners that chronicles her adventure in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Really loved this place. The staff were interested, interesting and very friendly. The exhibits told the story of the early Astoria very well. We wished that we had visited the museum at the start of our visit, many of the things we saw would have made a lot more sense and would have been enhanced by the information gathered at the Flavel House. By the way, the gift shop here is the best value for money in town. It deserves to be supported.

“A wonderful surprise”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Really enjoyed the Flavel House. Make sure you watch the video first, then go into the house. One of the things I found endearing were the excerpts from the dairy of Nellie Flavel which brought the building to life for me. I love old homes and the history behind them and this one did not fail me. Enjoyed it very much
