Reviewed 23 April 2011

This house stands out and is nearly impossible to miss. The minimal cost of $5 per person is well worth the bit of Astoria history gained along the way. The grand architecture coupled the simplistic functionality of this home make for a delightful tour. It was amazing to see the intricate finish work and just imagine the countless hours of craftsmanship involved. I only wish the attic and basement areas were open for viewing.

Museum volunteers meet you at the front door and provide a great backdrop and perspective on what you are about to see. The tour is self guided throughout the house past this point.

My wife and I enjoyed spending an hour or so wandering around the property and it's museum. It's a beautiful old home and interesting to visit. Children may not enjoy it much however.

The only reason this doesn't get the hightest rating is that, for children, it's probably not going to be as fun as for adults. Interesting film about owner of house and history of Astoria which you can watch in the old carriage house (gift shop) before visiting the house (if you would like). If you like Victorian architecture and furnishings, you'll love visiting this house. It's beautiful and a pleasure to walk around the house at your own pace. I'm not sure if tours are given. I didn't go on one, but there was always someone available to answer questions and provide additional information.
