I just loved this place! High ceilings, rich woodwork everywhere, beautiful doors, clocks, furniture, fireplace mantels, chandeliers. A dark interior adds to the richness. Highly recommend a visit.

Absolutely beautiful Victorian mansion. The history of the Flavel family and the mansion itself make this a worthwhile visit. I was particularly surprised to see that indoor plumbing was included in a house built in the 1880’s. A short video does an outstanding job of...More

This is an interesting museum celebrating Astoria's top citizen. Hint - go to the Carriage House on the corner first to get your ticket first, because, if you show up at the museum door, that's where they will send you. There is a multiple museum...More

As well as visiting a beautiful, historic house, we learned about one of the great seaman of Astoria and his family, bringing the community's history into a more personal focus. Visitors start in the carriage house and see a short film on Captain Flavel and...More
