This unusual piece of architecture, built from recycled bottles, granite and bricks in 1930, is a tribute from a father to his daughter. Located near South Mountain, you may take tours through the castle. Largely constructed of native stone, the 8,000-square-foot castle contains 13 fireplaces, 18 rooms and various features of interest. Southwestern antiques furnish this unique facility. Admission: USD5 adults; USD3 seniors; USD2 children. Credit cards are not accepted.
have been to the Castle many times and each time is a different experience have taken family and friends to meet MS.Mary Lou and hear her wonderful stories. Also the Castle contains the car parts of the car that her father drove to Phoenix. Ms. Mary Lou passed away November 3, 2010 n Phoenix Az and has left behind the beautiful Mystery Castle for all to enjoy. I still enjoy my visits and taking people along to enjoy the many rooms and tales of the Castle and I will miss the many stories that Ms Mary Lou shares with everyone.
This place is so wonderful! It is amazing to see all that this castle is made of. The time that must of gone into it is absolutely incredible! I suggest everyone go to Mystery Castle. The woman who owns the home is so friendly and willing to share her own home with everyone. Very kind woman! A must-see!
the mystery castle is cool its great for family activities. This place is one of those places that should be on someones to do list. I loved the story behind the mystery castle. It is worth every penny.
The Mystery Castle Museum was a pleasant surprise. In a city lacking much history and culture, this proved to be a unique experience drenched with memories of times past. The building itself was amazing, not to mention the view and the builder's now elderly daughter who greeted guests in the main room. I will definitely be back with out of town visitors.

We went to Pheonix to visit family and to see the sites. Our family had no idea about the Mystery Castle when we brought it up(we had found it on Yahoo Travel). So, we set out one morning to find out for ourselves all we could.
We were awwed by the story and the castle that we got to tour with a local friend of the owner/daughter. For a five dollar fee this was more than we had expected.
We are planning another trip back this year and this time we are bringing the locals with us. They need to know about the history and royality they are missing :)
