“I brought my husband and kids (ages 14 and 11) and we spent 2.5 hours in the house looking for secret passageways and compartments. We found 20 but wanted to find all 80 lol. Some were easier than others. Be sure to close a secret door behind you for the next person to find. The items in the rooms are all for sale and theres a bar to take a break at. A really fun and different way to spend a few hours in DC. ”

“Third time I have been to the mansion and I found two new secret doors I had never found before. So much fun. So much to see. ”

Devin on Jun 6, 2024 said:

“Looking through reviews before I went, and both the reviews and in person say the average does you find are 2-3. I went just the other day and managed to find 13 doors, as well as the collectible Tinkerbell hidden away as the must difficult thing to find. By far one of my favorite experiences, and I highly recommend going!!”

“My wife and I enjoyed viewing all of the art and history. It was breathtaking. There was so much to see. We certainly plan to visit again because there was so much to see, and although we toured the whole Mansion there was plenty that we missed (excluding the secret rooms we couldn't find, We only managed to find 4). One visit isn't enough!”

“Can't really rate the rooms as we didn't stay there, but the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed walking around seeing all the museum has to offer and exploring the secret doors!Growing up, being told not to touch things, made it very difficult for us to want to pick things up and try to find the hidden doors! But it is definitely encouraged here,Definitely worth coming back. There is much to see and despite walking through the areas several times, there was always something new we noticed.”

Betty Hsu - Los Altos, CA on May 11, 2024 said:

“I had fun looking for secret doors in the mansion. It was harder than expected. The fun part is looking at the collection of music and sports memorabilia. My husband could stay there a lot longer if time allowed.”

Nyla Fritz - Seattle, WA on May 11, 2024 said:

“This was a fantastic interactive venture for me and my 13 year old nephew. It was great mixture of types of engagement for each of us as we searched for the secret doors and explored all of the cultural and historical features and memorabilia. I'll definitely be back!”

Andy Henry - Greenville, PA on May 11, 2024 said:

“It was a very fun experience. Went with my kids 10 and 13. Their thoughts were..."Most of the secret doors were awesome" and "The fairy doors were not what we expected." It was an interesting experience and a lot of fun getting lost and finding the hidden doors.”

Stephanie Dabbs Hart - Cary, NC on May 11, 2024 said:

“Fun experience with so many interesting things to look at. Exploring was great and really enjoyed Chuckie's room! ;-) ”

Jeannette Cona-Larock from The Magic For Less Travel, on Apr 29, 2024 said:

“We had three adults and three children aged 10 and under to visit the museum. I bought the ticket and added the hidden gems tour as well. The children had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed hunting for the secret doors! They found, unbelievably, 26 of them! That said, for a first time visit, it's probably not necessary to do the add-ons especially since I had to pay x6 which increased the cost a fair bit. There's definitely enough to see and searching to do without adding on. For a second, third or fourth visit (and that would be fun to do!) adding on some of the other tours would enhance the visit. I'm so glad we stumbled onto this. I was looking for something fun to do with the children and this hit the mark for sure.”

Colleen on Apr 29, 2024 said:

“Sensational! Intrigue, mystery, sleuthing, attention to detail were all elements built in to the secret doors/Asian Garden/scavenger hunt tour. Delightful hosts and an experience for my adult family that was the cherry on the top of a wonderful DC experience! Whatever you do in DC on your visit -- make sure to end with this experience!”

Scott Mechkowski on Apr 15, 2024 said:

“When we think of selfless service and going the extra mile, "First Responders" often come to mind. However, today I want to highlight two individuals who exemplify these qualities in the hospitality industry.Meet H.H. Leonards and Ted Spero of the Mansion on O Street, Washington, D.C. -- a place that's a definite must-visit in the capital!H.H. and Ted are the epitome of gracious hosting. Their dedication to creating an unforgettable experience for every guest is unparalleled.Each time I visited D.C., the Mansion was my home away from home, enveloping me in its unique ambiance right in the heart of Dupont Circle.But it's more than just the vibe; it's the sense of family that H.H. and Ted foster. They are truly unforgettable personalities that leave a lasting impression on all who cross their threshold.If you're ever in D.C., don't miss the chance to experience the wonder of the Mansion on O Street and the exceptional hospitality of H.H. and Ted.”

James on Apr 15, 2024 said:

“A wonderful museum to visit. For $33, one can spend all the time they'd like to find the 70+ secret doors throughout the 30,000 square foot mansion that consists of 5 row houses.It truly is an eclectic blend of items, rooms, and decorations, where almost anything and everything is on sale! Make sure to stare up at the ceilings!Famous musicians have visited this place, which explains a lot of signed guitars throughout the rooms. They have artwork hanging on the walls from artists in residency. There's a wine cellar, an Elvis Presley room, and a Rosa Parks room, who stayed here for 10 years.”

Ethan Huang- Plainsboro Township, NJ on Apr 15, 2024 said:

“Ted and his co-hosts were fantastic! We wanted him to accommodate a larger group for our time slot (12, compared to the max of 10), and they were very responsive. They made it easy to schedule, there were no problems, and our group had a lot of fun exploring! We split into many smaller groups and bumped into each other randomly through the hidden doors. It was a lot of fun, would recommend for anyone who has never tried this type of attraction before.”

Chris Walker on Apr 15, 2024 said:


Andy Huang on Apr 15, 2024 said:

“Over 100 rooms and 80+ hidden doors, what not to like? It's the second time that my family has done the tour, it's honestly a lot of fun and you can really spend the entire day there if you take the time to enjoy the moment in each room...read a book, listen to music, sit back and relax, and just talk to friends.”

Maria Alesci - Syracuse, NY on Apr 15, 2024 said:

“Highly recommend! We had a range of children, including a hard-to-please teenager, with us and all had a great time! Staff was very friendly and each room was full of fun things to see.”

Nancy Beaird on Apr 6, 2024 said:

“Accompanied my two pre-teen grandkids to the O Museum and all three of us had a blast. Getting kids that age engaged (in anything not screen related!) can be tough, but the secret doors had them enchanted for several hours. Looking forward to a return visit next time I'm in the District. There is so much to see, it could never be boring. And the support for the arts is essential!”

Rachel L Carter on Apr 6, 2024 said:

“This was such a fun experience! Every room was beautiful, and finding secret doors was a lot of fun! I would go back again and again if I lived in DC!”

Ralf Wandel on Apr 4, 2024 said:

Kelly on Apr 3, 2024 said:

“Last rainy day of spring break brought us this gem and once we (mom and three kids 15, 12 and 10) found our first door (we found 4!), we were hooked and will definitely be back to explore more!!”

Katie Conrad on Apr 2, 2024 said:

“What a spectacular place! My husband and I poked around this curious museum filled with knick-knacks, baubles, and pieces of history. There are new things that catch your eye wherever you look, and it's so satisfying finding a hidden door. If we're ever in the DC area again, I can definitely see us returning. Highly recommend going, and spending as much time as you can exploring!”

Jarrod Blay on Apr 2, 2024 said:

“Such an amazing place. Just so much stuff to discover, incredible memorabilia and curiosities. The staff were all so nice. Could have spent all day there, easily. Would go again. Would recommend 100%”

Treasure on Mar 30, 2024 said:

“It was a beautiful and intriguing spot that had something for everyone to enjoy. I had a lot of fun searching for the secret doors and exploring through all of the rooms. At the end I had a nice chat with one of the staff members from Italy. Thank you!”

Nikki McCargar on Mar 29, 2024 said:

“This was a very cool place to visit. The antiques and history was fascinating, the different styles of rooms and ornate architectural features throughout the mansion were beautiful. The opportunity to find secret doors was an added bit of fun. Our group found 11. There were many rooms off limits during our visit, and it was crowded enough that we quickly started to feel claustrophobic. It made it very hard to get around and really look at much. We spent a bit over an hour there and had to leave because it was getting more and more crowded by the minute and we were uncomfortable. If the number of people in a time period were better managed we felt like we would get to see more and enjoy our time better. Otherwise it was very nice. Our your time was 11am on a Thursday.”

Kisha Allen on Mar 24, 2024 said:

“OMG! This museum was the highlight of our visit. We came for the Cherry Blossom festival but made a point to visit museums and so very glad this one was on the list. It was the first stop of the weekend and nothing else compared. I have an 11 year old son and for him it became a competition of who could find the most secret doors. I think we ultimately tied but he was happy to tell other visitors when he was ahead. An additional highlight was meeting and chatting with HH. Talked to Ted as well but didn't realize it was him. He told me a funny story about one of the secret doors I asked him about and then shared a YouTube video with us to go with the story. They are so down to earth and it added to the experience. I also appreciate HH signing a couple books to me and the message she wrote.The staff we interacted with were great also. Great sense of humor and willing to provide a nugget or two of information about the mansion but they didn't give anything away.It is a must visit and will be on my list for every trip to Washington.”

Matt Nealy on Mar 23, 2024 said:

“I have never been so pleasantly surprised and impressed by any museum or attraction...ever!”

Kim Kinyon Coke from Columbia College, on Mar 23, 2024 said:

“By and far our favorite experience while in DC. A fabulous night of connection, community, and creativity. Would love to come back and experience more. Thank you for the laughter and inspiration, we had a FABULOUS time!!!”

Pinar Beygo on Mar 20, 2024 said:

“Came with my family in December and had to come back with my friends this week just to show them the chaos and whimsy of the museum. Even without the secret doors (we found 14 of them!) just looking at all the items on display and the beautiful doors and windows in the mansion is worth the visit. Staff are friendly and helpful and it's just an experience like no other.”

Mike O'Hara from BohlerDC, on Mar 18, 2024 said:

“It was my first time in the storied Mansion and it lived up tot he hype. The structure and everything in it (including the people) are superb. The musical act was quite enjoyable as was the bartender. Thanks and I'll be back!”

Cyndy Hernandez on Mar 16, 2024 said:

“We were a group of 4, Mom and 3 kids ages 9-14. We had a great time seeing all of the memorabilia and trying to find the secret door first. This was a great experience for all, I was a "cool mom" for the night. ”

Heather Tarman - Austin, TX on Mar 15, 2024 said:

We felt like kids exploring all of the rooms, colors, textures, trinkets, etc. Was blown away to learn that this is also a functional hotel! Would love to stay there one night.”

Joan Masterman on Mar 15, 2024 said:

“Visited the O Street Museum in the Mansion today to see the "The Through the Looking Glass Exhibition" in the museum's secret gardens. So much to see... secret rooms, hidden passages....

You can never forget the excitement you get when you find the first secret door and get hooked. The place has a lot of collectibles and there is bound to be something that interests you!”

John Pilla on Mar 6, 2024 said:

“My wife and I had a great time looking at all the great memorabilia scattered throughout the mansion and trying desperately to find as many of the secret doors and rooms as possible. We were able to find about a dozen of the secret chambers (some with the help of other searchers) and we promised ourselves we will be back to try to find more! It is such a great time!”

Lisa Wood from Scholastica, on Mar 4, 2024 said:

David from The King of West Virginia , on Feb 23, 2024 said:

“It was my 3rd visit, and I still noticed new things. I brought a friend from Medellin, Colombia and she loved it. Her daughter works for Georgetown University and my guess is She and her friends will be stopping by soon, too. Also, my oldest son is a guitar enthusiast with about 20 guitars, and seeing my photos, he plans to visit on his next trip to DC. I look forward to the upcoming "Spy Room." Thanks for a wonderful morning and Mandy's warm treatment as we showed up at 9:00am.”

Eric Kruschke on Feb 23, 2024 said:

“Really interesting place!Loads of stuff everywhere...not sure how people would have the space to stay in the rooms!!My wife and I were up and down the place several times and only found about 12 doors...or about 18 if you count both sides...so I've no idea where the other SIXTY doors were hiding!!Nice way to burn a couple hours...not sure I'd come back, unless given a hint or two about how to find more.”

Peggy Hernandez on Feb 20, 2024 said:

“We had a great time at the museum, we thought it was lots of fun. The kids (ages 10 - 13) enjoyed searching for doors, rooms and Tinkerbells! The boys particularly enjoyed the Chucky Room. I appreciated the docent at the introduction speaking directly to the kids also and giving us things to look for, it definitely helped our experience.”

Ian Wilmoth on Feb 20, 2024 said:

- KR on Feb 17, 2024 said:

“Really fun place to hang out and explore in! Would have been even better if we had more time in our trip itinerary to relax in the mansion. Overall a great experience!”

Mary Shultz - Washington, DC on Feb 17, 2024 said:

“This was a really fun experience! Would highly recommend to visitors and locals alike- it's completely unique and very DC. My only nitpicks are that it's a little chaotic getting started, and the items inside are pretty overpriced. That said, if they were priced to move, the staff would have to replace the whole place every month.”

Debbie Fisher - Richboro, PA on Feb 17, 2024 said:

“Great time. Lost in stuff for 90 minutes”

Simca Dobson - Los Angeles, CA on Feb 17, 2024 said:

Starr on Feb 15, 2024 said:

“We did a self guided tour and it was fantastic! Something that's not talked about enough is the expertly curated music playing throughout the mansion! I used "Shazam" the whole tour to figure out which songs were playing. The mansion is definitely an ode to imagination! Felt like I walked into a trippy book and the narrator was Willy Wonka.”

Suzanne S. LaPierre from FCPL, on Feb 7, 2024 said:

“This is a fabulous place. We had a lot of fun finding hidden doors and admiring the collectibles. I enjoyed learning more about Rosa Parks' later years and seeing her room. The live bluegrass music was a happy surprise, as was the bartender (and his signature Old Fashioned).”

Teri Claar on Feb 5, 2024 said:

“Two adults, a 5 & 7 year old and had a blast. We spent 2.5 hours before we even heard one "is it time to go yet" because they were so engaged. We have very active kids and were worried about the you break it you buy it part, but everything was secured and arranged that as long as kids were kept in eyesight there were zero problems. There was some confusion because a large group of GS were starting just as we did, but once we got going to was an amazing experience ”

Susan Volman from Dupont Circle Citizens Association, on Jan 25, 2024 said:

“The Dupont Circle Citizens Association had our annual January "Resolutions" Party at the Mansion, as a Dessert and Champagne Celebration. The food, venue, and set-up were all fabulous. Many of our members enjoyed a tour of the Mansion, and loved it, even if they had been there before, there's always something new to explore.”

Coren Jonathan Allen from The Kambimbi Academy, on Jan 16, 2024 said:

“One of the very coolest, most eclectic and interesting journeys one can take in D.C.! Impossible to digest everything of interest--no exaggeration. We took our two teenage daughters and they enjoyed it at least as much (maybe more) than we did. Take a trip down memory lane (for those of us seasoned in life) and enjoy an intellectually curious adventure...and just keep in mind--I might have to do this again to see everything I missed! ”

Debby Missal on Jan 15, 2024 said:

“Amazing place! Everyone had so much fun. The food was incredible and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Truly the coolest place in DC!”

Maya on Jan 6, 2024 said:

Every team member (employee) was incredible, so polite, and extremely helpful! What an amazing crew! I highly encourage everyone to take the time to seek out this gem:)”

Susan on Jan 4, 2024 said:

“We had so much fun at the mansion! Easy walk from the metro. We did the Champagne New years night and it was a blast. The staff was very helpful and friendly! We will be back for sure (we didn't find all the doors!) One of our best date nights!!”

Gillian Woodward on Jan 4, 2024 said:

“Holiday parties can be tricky.. you made it easy! Our staff had a great time at the Mansion, from the food to the decorations everything was perfect. This was a great way to celebrate our staff and give us an opportunity to engage with one another on a social basis. The self-guided tours helped keep the group occupied until our White Elephant exchange and the food was delicious! Even the playlist was perfect. Thanks so much for everything! ”

Brianne Fischer from Fischer Consulting, LLC, on Jan 3, 2024 said:

Tobias Murphy - Huntington, WV on Dec 30, 2023 said:

“If you are trying to fit in everything when you come to DC, you can fit literally everything in one trip to the O Museum. Shopping? Just about everything you find in the decked out rooms is for sale. Games? They have a pool table, pinball tables, and more.... you just have to find them. Get a drink or snack? They have great cocktails. History? Yep! See Rosa Parks' room as well as a room dedicated to John Lennon. This is just a few of the 80 rooms you can see. We were hoping to blitz through them, but it was more fun to stop and look around carefully at all of the interesting things. There was even Judaica! The staff was warm, personable, funny, and helpful. This would be a fantastic experience for kids. There is also an elevator, making most everything handicap accessible. The direction video is also signed and available in multiple directions. They thought of everything! I couldn't recommend this highly enough. I couldn't believe they also have rooms available for reservation. Someday, I hope to do this.”

“We had employees in town for a company event and decided to do the Secret Door tour afterward as a fun activity. Overall, everyone seemed to enjoy it. It was just the right combination of challenging, interesting, and kooky. People also enjoyed being able to congregate by the bar. The actual bar drink selection was a little disappointing but the atmosphere was nice.”

“Me & my boyfriend went here yesterday & had an amazing time. This museum truly is a hidden gem and a unique experience. You could spend an entire day here not just looking for the hidden doors/ rooms but admiring all of the art work, the eclectic interior designs , the quirky little nicknacks , reading up on the famous people who have stayed there etc. It was truly a great experience for family's, friends & dates.”

Dominick donato on Dec 3, 2023 said:

“My comments would be it was very fun the only reason I didn't get five stars is because I'm upset we didn't find more doors LOL but we did find a great amount to the point where we helped other guests definitely want to come back to see other stuff just wanted to say I think during the 10 minute walk through the beginning you should give two or three give away doors but that's just my opinion I think it was a very good time and I love what you guys have going on here”

Benny from Personal , on Nov 29, 2023 said:

“The Robert James Workshop event was phenomenal. You always learn something significant when attending an event the O-Museum and you get to meet some of the most interesting people in the world. Every time I come to DC, I make a point of getting by the museum if my schedule permits. And although I have been there more than 5 times, there is always something new to discover. ”

“Touring the Mansion was a really cool experience. This place is really different and fun.”

Kim on Nov 23, 2023 said:

“Really different and interesting! Lots of stuff to look at, fun to find the hidden doors, will go again! Many of the items on display are really noteworthy, lots of signed guitars and 'blasts from the past'! Could stand to be pared down a bit, some of the tchotchkes are really just random junk. Also it's weird that stuff that is for sale (records, books, artwork) is also used to deter use, like placed over a toilet seat and in a bathtub. Overall my kids (teen boys, hard to entertain without a video screen) liked it more than I even hoped! Will def bring visiting family there, there's something fun for everyone there. ”

Jeremy from 11/18/23, on Nov 20, 2023 said:

“My family and I had a wonderful time exploring the O Museum over the weekend! We were in DC to celebrate our daughter's 13th birthday and she was beyond excited once we started exploring. There are so many good things I can say about this place with one of the top being it's great for all ages. My wife and I were equally stoked to find the secret doors and enjoyed each room's different vibe. Also, learning about the history of the diverse array of guests that have stayed over the years was another interesting notch in O Museum's belt. The staff were all very friendly, starting with our guide (can't recall her name) who was enthusiastic about explaining the museum's history. Special shoutout to the staff member in the kitchen who encouraged our daughter to not be put off by the wet floor signs, which led to a great discovery ;)It was the highlight of our trip and we will almost certainly be back to check out future events. ”

James Potter on Nov 1, 2023 said:

“We visited on Halloween as part of our trip from the UK and this was one of the highlights of our vacation. The museum was one of the coolest places I have ever visited. Each room was an incredible mix of nostalgia and exciting artefacts and the search for secret doors kept our 14 year old engrossed. The John Lennon room was a personal highlight, as was finding the wine cellar, after watching others give up. Leaving with a bag of Halloween candy was the absolute icing on the cake. What an amazing place and what an experience. ”

Hera McLeod on Oct 31, 2023 said:

“We had such a great time. It was my oldest daughter's tenth birthday and we all had a blast looking around and hunting for hidden doors. I'll be back without the kids so I can take my time and explore more. Highly recommend this!”

This spot is great for kids too, and the staff is very friendly. Highly recommend!”

Bex Moonah on Oct 13, 2023 said:

“Finding this place was like finding a secret door! I was looking for a place to visit in DC that allowed some walking, wasn't crowded and gave us lots to talk about. Wow!We spent almost two hours here, just walking around, looking at the rooms and seeing all the things in the various rooms and hallways. I know we didn't see it all, which kind of blows my mind.We found 8 or 9 secret doors, my husband had such a great time and is totally determined to have a secret door or two in our forever home :)The weekend after we visited I recommended this place to both my brother's family and one of my closet friends - I also recommend it to you.There is a lot of walking - up stairs, downstairs, through doors, hallways etc. and there is so much to see (and buy!). And hear - some rooms have music playing, some rooms have a lecture or speech playing and many also have related video on a screen.We had a great time here and are determined to return one day to find some additional doors and rooms.If you are someone who loves guitars, I would suggest you put aside some time and check the guitar collection out - we didn't really study them, but it was a very impressive collection.The two things that stuck out to me most were the sketches of Winne the Pooh and Piglet and the Yellow Submarine ukulele.This place was so much fun to visit, thank you so much!”

If you are worried you will feel rushed, you WILL NOT unless you have booked something else immediately afterword like I did! This was my biggest regret... I wish I had not booked our brunch so soon, if I hadn't done that we would have had even more time to explore . Once you check in, you are free to explore at your own pace! We LOVED this little hidden gem and can not wait to return!”

Timothy Fairchild - US on Oct 13, 2023 said:

“A very interesting place to check out! I would say that some of the secret doors are obvious because they are marked with a note and some are so small that they don't really lead to a new area but there are still plenty of good ones and the checking out the themes of each room is really cool. It's definitely worth going because it's a unique experience.”

Stephanie Armstrong on Sep 28, 2023 said:

“My husband and I spent several hours walking around The O Mansion. This hidden gem/museum is now on our all-time favorite places to visit list.Each room inspired awe, wonder,and curiosity.Evertime we revisited a room, we found another unique piece of art, or facet,that we missed before.The multitude of creative works and themes, transported us into the past. It also reminding us of the iconic activists and artists, who shaped our culture of today. We thoroughly enjoyed learning factual history of the many people who stayed at the mansion. Most of the rooms offer a comfy chair to sit and rest, while gazing at the many items within it. But better yet, you could touch the items, too. Almost everything displayed could be purchased, and the proceeds go towards the museum. With the many secret rooms or doors to be found,your sleuthing skills will be tested. Although you may not find them all, being surrounded by so much creativity, makes a person feel like there is still magic in the world. ”

“I found many doors but not enough to be crowned the Grand DoorMaster of the O Manor. I will return someday and find the Door to the Infinite Childhood, the Gate of the 37 Eyes, the Gateway at the Start of the Nightmares, and the Exit Through the Gifted Shoppe.Beware! The person at the bar serves healthy pours.”

Erika Hale on Sep 10, 2023 said:

“My husband and I stayed at the hotel with four other adult family members. We had two two-bedroom suites in the building across the street. We arrived around 7:30 pm and spent several hours in the mansion, searching for secret doors and exploring all the eclectic rooms. After the museum closed at 9 pm, we had the entire museum to ourselves. We helped ourselves to the honor bar, played games and billiards, and did more exploring. We even met the owner of the hotel who told us a lot of stories about the mansion and its famous guests! The beds were really comfortable, and we had a superb time.”

“Fantastic experience! I took my girlfriend here for a surprise date and she loved the mansion and it's secret doors as much as I did. ”

Laura Mordica on Sep 9, 2023 said:

“A great exploration of this amazing house and all the great history. Searching for the hidden doors was a phenomenal experience. The kids, 13 & 10, had a blast and put this as a #2, with the White House tour being #1. The family request we make this a spot for all of our returning DC visits. The staff was very welcoming. ”

Jake on Sep 6, 2023 said:

“A really fun experience. This was my second time here, but with a different group. It was entaining watching our friends struggle to find the doors. My only gripe was regarding the promised "best high five" for finding Tinkerbell, and I never got it. So, 4.5 stars without the high-five, but 5 stars with the round up.”

Amy Salcido on Aug 28, 2023 said:

“It was so much fun! I would have liked some more explanation to know what constitutes a secret door.. maybe like a sticker by every door once it's opened to know. But it was sooo much fun!!! ”

Jennifer Arrington on Aug 27, 2023 said:

“We were in DC for a vacation but some in my group had to attend to a couple business activities. While they were doing that, 2 of us visited the museum and had such a great experience, we brought the rest of the group back later in the week. There are tons of really great experiences in the DC area, but the O Mansion is at the top of my list!”

Alex Davis - US on Aug 27, 2023 said:

“Surprisingly educational experience with a deep history rooted in major events in America, as well as plentiful noteworthy individuals who either have stayed at the mansion, have photos there, or just have provided interesting memorabilia of some sort in general that adds even more discovery to the desire to try and find every hidden door. Overall, very fun and rewarding when you find a hidden door! Super simple and works just as well for a date as it does for a fun family outing.”

“Hard to think of a more fun and meaningful way to spend the day in DC! Rich in history, heart, and intrigue. Whole family had a wonderful time. Ted and his crew were kind, generous, and knowledgeable. Visited by many US presidents. Blessed to find 18 of 85 secret doors (average is 2-4) and see most of the mansion. Imagine exploring the largest escape room ever, filled with genuine treasures and history of the arts and humanities. Impossible to find everything, yet everyone learns and wins. Well worth the time and money. Would go back in a heartbeat”

Jennise Beverly-Chaffold on Aug 26, 2023 said:

“Went to the O Museum in The Mansion for the tour. This tour included searching for hidden doors and gems through out the space. There are 70 hidden doors, but most that tour only find a small fraction of them. Normally less than 2. ;)Spent a few hours exploring and was able to find a few doors and a few hidden gems. 14 doors, and 2 gems. The Rosa Parks room was fantastic, to actually be in a space that she lived for over 10 years was epic. The entire mansion feels like a huge thrift/antique store. It has a ton of books, toys, dishes, you name it. The space is fantastic. It is a lot of walking and a lot of stairs, although you can take the elevator to each floor. Overall this was the most enjoyable tour we took while visiting the Nation's Capital.”

Lisa Rand - Vernon Hills, IL on Aug 26, 2023 said:

“This was a lot of fun exploring the house to find some of the hidden doors. We only found about 8 of the 70. It would have been nice to have some clues provided to help find the smaller ones. Overall, this was a fun experience and at a reasonable price.”

Vanessa Manz - Glenshaw, PA on Aug 26, 2023 said:

Marissa Ferrell - US on Aug 26, 2023 said:

“This place is honestly so fun. You'd be surprised how much fun you'd have finding secret passageways. My friends and I are all in our 20s and that's the most fun we've had in a long time. I went for my birthday and had an amazing time. 10/10 would recommend.”

The Mansion is filled with so many unique and beautiful items: furniture, books, art, appliances, you name it! I felt like I was in a live version of an I Spy book and had the time of my life. The history is so rich, and I was truly in awe the entire time I was exploring.”

We found 24 doors and were done for the day! We will return to search again. This is an amazing place to explore, enjoy, and relish what the O Museum has to offer those who enter. This is a hidden gem of Washington DC. You can uncover the hidden doors if you are willing to search and keep an open mind!”

We stayed about two hours and found 15 doors. ”

Don't be in a rush to get through this one, take your time and look closely, once you start finding the doors you'll be so excited to see where they lead you. ”

“What an amazing experience for us and the kids. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place, the staff, and the amount of fun we had.The decorations and rooms are unique and wonderful, pictures don't do justice to actually being there. Each room and each level is an adventure. So many little things that you notice and you could literally spend hours and hours just in one room if you wanted.The secret door hunt was so fun and engaging. One of the best experiences we have had as a family together. We must have spent 3-4 hours and it went by so quickly. Its a memory we will all keep with us.”

Greg Cotton on May 27, 2023 said:

“What an incredible (and eclectic) experience! Although we didn't stay as hotel guests (this would be quite an unusual experience for that - be sure to verify with the staff about whether your room includes a private bathroom, and during what hours visitors to the museum might be right outside your bedroom door!).However, just touring the house(s) as a "museum" was fascinating and well worth the visit. Although a bit away from the traditional Washington DC Mall visit, the "Secret Door Museum at the Mansion on O Street" is still a must see! Especially if you visit early (it's better when it's not crowded), and then lunch can be a few blocks away at the incredible Kamers (bookstore and) cafe!For anyone looking for something a bit beyond the "Archives and Smithsonian" (which are great reasons to visit DC!), this place is worth adding to your itinerary!Rooms: Very eclectic. Be prepared for a LOT of extra items (some might describe it as "clutter") in the rooms. Fascinating variety of items, many autographed or very unusual items.The rooms are excellently themed, providing a nice continuity to the items that are present, but removing items from the bathroom or closet so that you have space to put your clothes or suitcases away may be a surprise to some guests.Nearby activities: Be sure to visit Kamers (bookstore and) Cafe - only a fee blocks away on the other side of Du Pont circle.Walkability: The walk from a few Metro stations is perfectly fine on most days (a few blocks), but bad weather or extreme heat may make a RideShare (e.g. Uber, Lyft, etc.) more desirable for some.”

Every room was carefully created, constantly changing, and so much fun to pilfer through.

She had an absolute blast wandering around and finding them. She said "this place is so awesome" multiple times! She was so proud of herself for finding the wine cellar all by herself! We did manage to find some items on our Spy list and I was impressed with the list itself and all the bonuses you were also encouraged to find. We were easily there for 3 hours and never bored once. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, one gentleman even gave my niece a hint to help her find the Tinkerbell door because she was SO desperate to find it. I would recommend arriving earlier as it got a lot more crowded as the day went on. But all in all, it was a unique and fun experience that I definitely recommend!”

This is an ideal afternoon with friends, a group of tweens, and especially music enthusiasts. Although mostly handicap accessible, some parts of the mansion can only be accessed using smaller assistive devices like canes. I have a rollator but may use my cane with a fold out stool next time. So much fun!”

Janelle Warner - Baltimore, MD on Oct 6, 2022 said:

“Looking for stuff to do while we stayed in Alexandria and found this place, and was curious as to what it'd be like. Was pleasantly surprised at how much fun my friend and I had walking around looking for secret doors. We also enjoyed walking through the various rooms and looking at the decor and different styles of the times. The stuff in there seems really random at times, and other times, you just find yourself gawking at the fact that all this stuff is contained in one residence. I still wonder how it simultaneously operates as a hotel, because there is stuff literally everywhere you look. The staff was kind and informative, I'm still fascinated about the fact that Rosa Parks lived there for 10 years (still not sure we made it to her room, but we definitely didn't see everything for the 3-4 hours we were there. Time flew! We found a little over 10 doors and we still discovered a room we missed the second time we went back for 10 extra minutes. Some doors are bound to be accidentally revealed to you when other people are also looking around, but it's no big deal. Would definitely bring a group back here to do this as a team building exercise or something with some friends. Also, highkey want to find more doors. If you're ever in DC or Alexandria, definitely check this place out. The seeming randomness of it this place is experience enough, and on top of that, you may really enjoy it!”

Anwen B. - San Rafael, CA on Oct 6, 2022 said:

“This place is a haven in DC for its uniqueness and diversity. Every room is lined with incredible art, you could spend weeks just looking at everything in there. I've gone multiple times and it never gets old because there is constantly new items coming and going and different art exhibits up. There are some amazing works by Gerald Johnson in various rooms.One of my favorites is the Beatles themed roomed where you can play pool, listen to some good music, and on an off day maybe even have one of the staff make popcorn out of the old machine! Also there is beautifully designed log cabin room (which you can also say in as a guest if you want).There are plenty of fun secret doors to be found, and keep in mind that not all doors are what you might consider "doors". ”

Nicole Lando on Oct 3, 2022 said:
