  • I went here a couple weeks ago. it was truly amazing place to walk around. like you just went back in time where you got to see the richest family lived. the historian lady was very helpful and well knowledged. I wish I could go up to the tower and see where Captain George worked and oversea the shops. I would like to stand out at the balcony where Nellie and Katie ( George's daughters) stood as they wave to the ships going by. but due to fire safety code. it's not allowed 5 stars still
  • This museum is great, I've been at least 3 times with my wife whenever we visit Astoria and it gets better every time!
  • Beautiful home and always cool to learn local history
  • A lot of the history of Astoria centers around Captain George Flavel and his development of the economy of the region. His story is the story of Astoria and the house is a definite must see for any visitor that has even a hint of curiosity about how it was to live in the early days of our country.
  • Expect to spend about an hour here. Tickets are inexpensive and this is a must see attraction in Astoria.
