“Favorite experience from our DC visit.”

Sophia on Aug 7, 2022 said:

“It was a fun mystery looking for doors. It did feel a lot like walking through a full estate sale though. I was so afraid to accidentally break something. ”

“Such a fun experience for my family and I. The secret door experience brings out the kid in everyone. ”

“This is a very unique and interesting museum! I would definitely return to the museum and bring another group of friends. I want to believe that we found all the big hidden doors, but we almost left without seeing the Halloween room, so we weren't as observant as we had expected. I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a unique experience in DC.”

“The Sunday Magic Show was amazing! Misdirection aside, he must have eyes un the back of his head to complete his flawless performance. He put on a delightful show; it was truly magical!”

Bernard Demczuk from UDC/MPD, on Aug 1, 2022 said:

“This is truly a hidden gem in D.C. This place is amazing! The secret door tour is very cool. I need to come back and try to find more and do more shopping! Such an eclectic place---I've never seen anything like it!”

Michiko on Jul 20, 2022 said:

“We had a wonderful time exploring this amazing hotel - we could easily have wandered the hotel for days!! Would highly recommend this very eclectic hotel. Spent quite some time looking for the hidden wine cellar, was definitely the highlight of our searches! Thanks for helping us celebrate our 40th anniversary in such a unique way. We will be back!”

Katie Sherman on Jul 19, 2022 said:

“The house is fascinating and packed full of neat items displayed in a fun, eccentric way. Great for curious kiddos. My 11 year old daughter's favorite finds were Tinker Bell and the Elvis room. We laughed, got lost, and loved it all!! We went 1.5hrs before closing, but I'd recommend more time. People were great too.”

Dan Foster - Springfield, MO on Jul 16, 2022 said:

Lara McLaughlin - Baltimore, MD on Jul 16, 2022 said:

“This was s super fun trip to give to my two oldest grandchildren, 11 and 8. We thought we would take advantage of the themed treasure hunt lists but they only wanted to focus on finding the hidden doors! It turns out that children are REALLY good at finding the doors. We (haha, THEY) found every single room! We had time to go back to some of our favorite rooms and of course they both bought something to remember the trip. A crazy whacky place to visit and my husband and I will probably go back by ourselves to take advantage of some of the virtual app links to be found that add special information, and maybe use those treasure hunt lists.”

Joseph Quiroz - US on Jul 16, 2022 said:

“This experience was so much fun! My girlfriend and I were determined to find as many of the secret rooms as we could. We may just have to book a stay at this hotel/museum to find all of them through out the night. Highly recommend this for anyone!”

Benjamin Seitelman on Jul 11, 2022 said:

“This was my second experience at the Mansion, and first in almost four years. I went with an out-of-town guest who had never been before. She had a blast, as did I. Four years was enough time to forget most of the secret door locations, and on this visit I even found more doors, including in unexpected places. It was a great rainy day experience; I can't wait to go back someday (but not for a while--I want to forget where all the doors are).”

Anthony Pace on Jul 10, 2022 said:

“This place is absolutely amazing!! We wanted to do something different on this quick trip to DC and The Mansion was the perfect choice. We figured it would be an hour or two but were completely blown away by everything there was to see and explore. All said and done we spent nearly 5 1/2 hours there discovering new things around every corner. Couldn't ask for a better time. The staff was incredible as well. Very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend The Mansion to everyone who wants to have a great time a little off the beaten path. One of DCs hidden gems for sure.”

Susan Foord on Jul 1, 2022 said:

“No, this is not a 5 star - Out of 5 stars it is a 10. Took my 7 and 10 year old grandsons this time (I've been here many times - had a big birthday bash here a few years ago) and they were enthralled. Immediately after leaving they asked if they could come back sometime. OF COURSE!!!”

Bob Kuntz on Jun 28, 2022 said:

“We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a great way to spend an afternoon. learned a lot and was an inspirational time.”

Tracy Collier on Jun 27, 2022 said:

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms and decor are fantastic and we definitely plan to return to the mansion in the future for more fun! ”

We also purchased a few nice items and saw many more we would have loved to get. I highly recommend by of the tours. Simply terrific time. ”

Geoffrey on Jun 7, 2022 said:

“A blast to look around at every room. The house is bigger than expected, with secret doors both somewhat obvious and completely inventive. I love that nearly everything is for sale.”

Anne on Jun 7, 2022 said:

“Enjoyed the Secret Door Experience. Heard about you from friends. We posted 2 pictures on FB to spread the word too. Wish there was a list of rooms you could pull up on your phone to click when you've seen them. We went back to the web site lodgings part to look at the pictures to determine what we had missed & seen. We had a lot of fun! Thank you.”

Lisa Phelps on May 30, 2022 said:

Amanda Simonson on May 20, 2022 said:

“Mine and My son's (8) first time in DC. My husband's 4th. We were all pretty excited when I found this adventure! Parking was a but harder than expected, I didn't expect the mansion to be in the city, either. But it all worked out well! Our hostess let me know how to get everything taken care of. The mansion itself did not disappoint! I wasn't sure how many hidden doors we would find, but we found all the doors I think.. those little cubbies hiding around are very tough, we didn't find and tiny ones.. very cool to see everything in the mansion and all the wonderful rooms. Definitely something to check out if you haven't already!”

Robert Rutland-Brown on May 16, 2022 said:

“We loved it! It was nice to not have too many people there, which made for better exploring.”

Edie Webb on May 13, 2022 said:

“We had an amazing stay at The Mansion! Truly a unique place. We enjoyed The Safari room and had a great tour with Samantha. We played pinball, sat out in the courtyard and found a few hidden doors on our own! The location couldn't be better. Staff was all lovely! We will recommend a stay here to others. Would love to come back to do a dinner in the hidden wine cellar. Our one recommendation would be to have coffee/tea available in The Mansion for guests. Thank you to all for an incredible experience!”

Anita on May 8, 2022 said:

“Loved the unique experience at the Mansion. Cannot imagine staying there, as it is too "over the top" for me, but it was lots of fun! We enjoy doing non-typical things in cities, so this was great.”

“Such fun! We found 5 doors - can't wait to come back and try to find some more!”

Nicole Idler - Tucson, AZ on Apr 29, 2022 said:

“This house is very eccentric with so many twists and turns. We actually stayed a bit longer than the hour and a half, which flew by. We were bound and determined to complete our quest. This would be a very fun experience for all ages. There are so many various collectors items that there is something for everyone. Some of our group was just interested in finding hidden doors, some really enjoyed the specific quests and treasure hunt. Others just preferred to look at everything and take it all in. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.”

Rebekah Smith -Little Rock, AR on Apr 22, 2022 said:

Susanne Hartkop Pappal on Apr 22, 2022 said:

“A very interesting museum. Worth it for the history”

Rob Wiscount - Swedesboro, NJ on Apr 22, 2022 said:

“Wonderful experience and would definitely recommend!”

Edie Vaughan - CA, United States on Apr 22, 2022 said:

Jenn Cianchetta-Riordan, Holly Springs, NC on Apr 22, 2022 said:

“Super-fun experience with the family! It was exciting to roam around in search of secret doors. So many things to look at!”

Beth Rue - Annapolis, MD on Apr 22, 2022 said:

“This is by far one of the most eclectic places I've been. There are so many things to look at. It would be hard with little kids because I think they would want to touch it all! But cool experience for certain”

Amanda Nguyen on Apr 22, 2022 said:

“Love Love Love this experience. This would be great for a cute date or a team building experience to a personal escape/get away to get lost in. Next time in DC I will definitely do this tour again to see if there are more doors I wasn't able to find. I do wish there were more hints as to where the smaller doors are hidden. I only found 17 out of the 70+. It's definitely a wonderful challenge.”

Laralyn Victoria on Apr 19, 2022 said:

“Thumbs up all around! The kids loved getting lost and finding new doors. So fun!”

Janet Price on Apr 18, 2022 said:

“It was like stepping into the pages of an "I Spy" book and having a look around. Truly something for everyone to see and appreciate as you move through what by itself is an immense gorgeous house. After the 3 hours of wandering, I feel like I barely scratched the surface. I will definitely return, hopefully for an event night. Thank you for protecting this wonder.”

Tracey Sanders on Apr 16, 2022 said:

“As always, it was fun finding secret doors and we especially enjoyed the newest secret door!”

Ramsey Poston on Apr 15, 2022 said:

“O Street Mansion is a DC treasure. A visit to the Mansion should be on every tourist's and local's bucket list. For locals, the mansion is the perfect place for a "staycation" and for tourist it is an opportunity to see a very different part of this city. The Mansion staff treat their guests like royalty. For music lovers, there really is nothing like the Mansion's collection of guitars and other historic artifacts. ”

Ava gabrielle on Apr 12, 2022 said:

“It was so fun and interesting ”

Evy on Apr 11, 2022 said:

“What a remarkably unique experience! I can honestly say I've never seen or experienced anything like the mansion! It's great fun exploring the rooms and searching for the secret doors!!”

“Had a great time wandering the mansion. We found about 20 secret doors! A must place to visit when you are in DC.”

Dee on Apr 8, 2022 said:

“It was really different. My family had a blast. Those secret doors are har to find especially the smaller one. We found Tinker bell within 5 minutes. We will be back.”

TERRY D BARNES on Apr 7, 2022 said:

“So fun looking for the doors, really great exhibits to see. ”

Lynn F Koiner from Koiner Farm, on Apr 1, 2022 said:

“I was there in 2018 and I wanted to bring my neighbor and best friend as a Christmas present. She was thrilled. I missed some of the hidden places that I found in 2018 but I found new ones. We want to come down again with her family. Posted photos on Facebook and this stimulated great interest.”

Joe Redd on Mar 29, 2022 said:

“It was very fun. Finding the secret doors was exciting, but so was the for sale items, the memorabilia, and the things you could do. I brought 2 teenagers, and my son and daughter both had fun. We played pinball, billiards,clapped for chucky, put together a puzzle. It was quality time for us. Very few museums could ever pull that off.”

Naomi Savaro on Mar 27, 2022 said:

“Such a great place to explore. So many twists & turns - you find a secret door and think you're heading somewhere new - sometimes you end up someplace you already seen.”

Kaylee Norris on Mar 21, 2022 said:

“We found this place last minute & it was the best part of our day! We will definitely be back. ”

Jiaqi on Mar 21, 2022 said:

“Definitely the coolest place I've been to in DC. I wish I could stay there overnight for my next visit!”

Frances meyer on Mar 18, 2022 said:

“Very eclectic, we spent hours going thru the numerous rooms. Very enjoyable experience. We even found tinker bell. Glad we came! ”

Renee Gibson on Mar 14, 2022 said:

“Our first visit here (definitely not the last) and absolutely was enchanted! Had so much fun discovering doors, rooms and artifacts. I would love to see a room checklist given to guests at the beginning just to check them off and see what we missed/how many rooms we actually found, so I could go hunting more the next time! ”

Mary Sciotto on Feb 25, 2022 said:

“Awesome! I brought my sister here as a surprise for her birthday. She is an Agatha Christie fan and loved the mystery of the secret doors. We found 12! The mansion is beautiful. Thank you for a wonderfully fun experience!”

Robin Rouse on Feb 23, 2022 said:

“Wow, this place is so AWESOME! It's truly unlike anything we've ever experienced. Honestly, if you visited every day for a month and stayed three hours, you would still not see everything. At times it was a little overwhelming; so much to see WHILE trying to find secret doors/rooms. The secret doors lead you to totally different spaces; it somehow seems to be never-ending! We just wish it had been a little less crowded; we didn't get a chance to "find" some of the doors because people came through them! But even that was a bit of a thrill, having a wall suddenly open up next to us. A visit earlier in the day might have been a better bet where that's concerned. Being a boomer, this place brought up all sorts of memories and nostalgia and trips through history. If you're a museum lover, you will absolutely love the mansion. If you just like a challenge, you'll absolutely love the mansion. If you were around anywhere near the 60s and 70s, your heart will swell! (But it's not all for older folks!) And I had champagne, so ... :)”

Samantha on Feb 22, 2022 said:

“I had such a fun time exploring the mansion and learning about its history. I've lived in DC for three years and wish I'd gone sooner. You could easily spend two to three hours visiting and still not find all the secret doors. Great for group events and solo excursions any time of year. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. 10/10 recommend. ”

Cathy & Tony Ramstetter from Prestige AV & Creative Services, on Feb 22, 2022 said:

“We enjoyed exploring the mansion; it was fascinating to see memorabilia next to dishes or books or promotional knickknacks. SUCH a collection. Finding secret doors and seeing what was behind was an added bonus. Exploring in a small group would be fun to work together or do a game of some sort...but we had the best time by ourselves! AND: we met Ted. THANK YOU, Ted, for sharing YOUR story, and H's vision and work to bring the Mansion to life. We are grateful and look forward to seeing you again when we next come to DC. ”

Lori Stultz on Feb 21, 2022 said:

“This was the most incredible experience. There was so much to see and each room elicited a different emotion, some were of awe, some of nostalgia, some of surprise. It was a most personal and entertaining visit. We already look forward to returning next year when we are again in the Washington area. ”

Deborah Anderson - Charlotte, NC on Feb 19, 2022 said:

“Fun family experience!”

Shelli Sotiro - Leonardtown, MD on Feb 19, 2022 said:

“A spectacular array of rooms and objects! We knew we were going to an historic townhouse with lots of objects and hidden doors. We didn't realize that it's a combined four row houses with artistry in every inch and it is basically also an operating hotel, so most of the rooms are bedrooms, each decorated uniquely - some French provincial, some art deco, some Bohemian, and others just an eclectic mix of styles, textures, prints and knick knacks. It was fun. We found seven of the secret doorways into other rooms, and that gave our boys a thrill. The owners happened to be on site during our tour, and we really enjoyed a few minutes of conversation with this incredible, intelligent, wordly and other-worldly, culturally diverse couple! A separate experience to my liking would be a tea time chat with H and her wonderful partner in crime! A visual smorgasborg!!”

Tugce Aldemir - State College, PA on Feb 18, 2022 said:

“It was so much fun to explore the rooms. Each room has a different story to tell. We especially fell in love with one of the rooms, where we hope to stay as guests in the future.”

“My Christmas Party was held last week at the Mansion at O Street. In thirty-five years in business I have only returned to a venue twice for our party--The O Street Mansion was such a hit with my staff in 2019 that we came back. This is a very, very special place! The mansion itself is filled with such things as a guitar signed by all the original Rolling Stones, a Miss America tiara, and innumerable works of art. There is so much to see here, it is hard to tell if you are in a museum or on a treasure hunt. And if this didn't intrigue our group there are 80 hidden doors to find. We had 45 minutes to explore the mansion before dinner and it was hard to regroup in the dining room because we were all having so much fun.Dinner was even better than our last one here. The caprese salad was amazing and our vegetarian and chicken entrees were as tasty as they were beautiful. We had all sorts of dietary needs in our group (no red meat, no fish, no mushrooms, vegan only, vegetarian, etc etc). Our meal was planned bearing all this in mind thanks to the patience and expertise of Madison and the chef.Madison coordinated everything and could not have possibly been more gracious. She stayed until the end of the evening- a very long day for her, I am sure. She was wonderful.The chef, and the servers Luigi and Forenzio, were absolutely excellent. We couldn't have asked for a more professional staff.The geniuses behind this magical mansion, H and her husband Ted, have created magic in downtown Washington DC. Magic, joy, and a place like no other.Just go.”

Michelle on Jan 1, 2022 said:

“I wasn't sure what to expect because the website was so hard to navigate and find the NYE event we were interested in, but pleasantly surprised at the experience when we got there. Delicious treats were available and a chocolate fondue fountain. My husband and I explored for about 2 hours and found about 12 doors including the wine cellar. We couldn't find any tiny doors though. We'll have to come back to find those! ”

Luz Pelaez Lowe - US on Dec 30, 2021 said:

Jennifer Patterson Fort - Lauderdale, FL on Dec 25, 2021 said:

“This is a wonderful experience. There are several different secret doors and winding turns that takes you on an adventure. It's almost like you're transported through history to different locations and periods of time. Good bang for your buck. Make sure you find the wine cellar it's a real treat!”

Scott Baker - Madison Heights, VA on Dec 25, 2021 said:

Lorraine Madden - Hanover, PA on Dec 25, 2021 said:

“This is an experience that is totally what you make of it, in a really good way! We originally wanted to find all of the secret doors, but became enchanted with the experience of each room, every floor, and making sure we visited each brickstone (we almost missed one!). There is no reason to not enjoy, because it's self guided and self described. Do you want to soak in the memorabilia?, the original art works?, the design elements?, the secret doors?, the unique ambiance of each room? There's a lot to appreciate here, including the historic relevance of this location and its ties to Mrs Rosa Parks and so many other persons. And the staff are incredible and super friendly, we enjoyed talking with them! This was a fabulous, way outside the typical DC tourist destination, which made it even more special and enjoyable!!”

Ted kindly showed me some amazing footage on his phone after I expressed interest in one of the bands who've visited! This is a delightful adventure with different layers or aspects of significance depending on your age.”

We saw them the previous night in a large venue, which was really good, but being a small venue and close to the band made this performance at the Mansion on O Street special. You could tell that the band members were also having a good time. Awesome night.”

Jacklyn Brown - US on Nov 29, 2021 said:

“If you're in the area this is a must see!! We had so SO much fun doing the rock and roll scavenger hunt and looking for the hidden doors! We definitely want to come back. You could go many times and still see something different for sure. Also it is a hotel so you can stay there. A very unique one at that. How fun would it be to stay overnight there!? Although I can't imagine staying more than one night, as it would be too overwhelming for me with the amount of nostalgia each room holds! It's wonderful the collection of items this place holds! From the lobby, bar area, function room to all the guest rooms, every inch of this place is filled with memorabilia - And you can purchase just about everything in the hotel. Great date night idea for all ages! This was a surprise gift experience for my husbands 61st birthday and he wasn't sure what to expect when we first arrived. Then our experience began and we spent an entire afternoon looking for the items on our list and all the doors we could find. We did pretty well - even found the very hidden beautiful wine cellar!! But we did spend 4 hours! Depending on your child: Children may get overwhelmed or not find it interesting as it may feel like going through an antique or consignment store to them - although with that being said searching for the hidden doors which are not easy to always find may keep their interest and find the whole experience FuN for them - I'm sure of that much! We also met the owner's husband who was so kind and had a few stories to tell us. He assured us as well as other staff that if you really needed a hint they would be sure to help you out - but what fun would that be!? Just enjoy the experience!”

James Grier - Hampton, VA on Nov 29, 2021 said:

“This was a fun experience. The Mansion is so eclectic- there was so much to see! Would like to have a "secret door check list" with a short general description of each door, that did not give away any locations- so we knew which ones we had not found yet. And could keep track of the ones we did.”

John Gary Barrett on Nov 8, 2021 said:

“First visit by my family to the Mansion and it was wonderful. We spent 2 hours exploring on a Sunday afternoon and could have spent a lot more. The wandering complexity of the spaces, huge volume and diversity of things, fantastic decoration throughout were absolutely wonderful. Our kids - 13 1nd 15 - had a laser-like focus on finding secret doors (found 8!) while my wife and I spent a little more time enjoying the experience. Delighted that we went, strongly recommend it to others and we will certainly be back!”

“LOVVVVED IT! The O Mansion defies description. It's a combination funhouse, decor tutorial, historic architectural tour, video and audio show, brainteaser, blast from the past, gymnasium and yard sale. It's cozy, confusing, creative, confounding and cuddly. It triggers emotions and memories, releases stress, and increases productivity... and creates a natural high achieved by just being in it's presence. This expanding-contracting time capsule is a MUST EXPERIENCE. I found you through Atlas Obscura, but I am certainly willing to tatoo you across my ..., for advertising purposes, so the uninitiated can experience you. ”

So different from any other experience we've had in our travels together. My only regret is that I chose a late event time (3 pm) so we only had about two hours to wander around. We all would have preferred to spend much more time there. We will definitely go back as a family and our adult children plan to go back with friends as well. So much fun!! ”

Margie Lidoff on Aug 1, 2021 said:

“I love the O Street Mansion. I had a big birthday celebration for my most recent special birthday and have enjoyed several other activities there. Yesterday was no exception. The book talk was inspiring, the authors engaging, H.H. Leonards friendly and welcoming. All the staff was friendly and helpful. I had not known about Rosa Parks' connection to O St. and was moved by visiting her room and the video that was playing in it. Thank you for all your cultural and socially-relevant gifts! Margie Lidoff, Washington D.C.”

Bob and Anita Price on Jul 31, 2021 said:

“We've never had so much fun in a museum before! Found only 19 doors and just sorry that we didn't count the rooms! Took tons of pics and spread the word lots of ways including FB. Memorabilia is fantastic and we will definitely come back next time we are in DC. ”

Bobby Coady on Jul 20, 2021 said:

“My favorite thing in DC...stayed busy everyday for a week and this was the most fun I had... spent 3 hours could of spent 8 easily. We did hidden gems hunt but spent our time focusing on the hidden doors, much more rewarding finding different wings to the mansion than any item.”

Anthony Charles Eglesias on Jul 20, 2021 said:

“I attended the Bluegrass Jam. It was fantastic!”

Mark Cooper on Jul 18, 2021 said:

“My family and I attended for the 1st time and found it to be delightful. The staff was friendly and earnest. The museum itself was a blend of pop art and kitsch in the best way. Looking for the hidden doorways was fun for us and the fellow visitors- and yes, we did find some! But not all- that just leaves a challenge for the next time. Fun for kids of all ages”

Deborah Weinstein from LGEF, on Jul 13, 2021 said:

SHERRY L SHEARER on Jul 6, 2021 said:

“This is an awesomely fun experience! We explored the museum in search of hidden doors and found over 20 in just a few hours. Of course, our family of four is excellent at solving puzzles and working together. Once we found a couple, we were determined to find as many as we could. We loved seeing all the nostalgia and interesting items for sale as we searched for hidden passages and doors of all sizes hidden in the mansion. ”

Tam Pitts on Jun 14, 2021 said:

“When reserving my ticket to the museum, I was very leery about the experience. However, I am so glad I visited the museum. It was an experience and adventure I will NEVER forget. The hunt of the secret doors was fun, all the items on display were unique and/or vintage! Getting the chance to meet Ms. H was awesome! And I loved the tribute to Rosa Parks! Very informative and creative! If you get the chance to visit the Mansion, take your time, look at everything and enjoy the experience. FYI, we found over 7 secret doors! LOL”

Dawn Darr on Jun 7, 2021 said:

“First time visitor and my family was blown away by the uniqueness of this museum. Hunting for the secret doors and the "gems" on the sheet kept us engaged from the moment we stepped off the elevator on the fourth floor until we left 2:5 hours later. Having found 17 hidden doors, my family felt like real sleuths. What a treasure O Street Mansion is! We can't wait to bring our friends and come back again to explore more. ”

Alix Johnson on Jun 3, 2021 said:

“My granddaughter, age 9, and I visited the Mansion for the Secret Door tour and it was just enchanting! We scurried up and down the corridors and in and out of amazing rooms for more than and hour, and managed to spy ten hidden doors! Since we were so focused on the hunt we did not spend nearly enough time discovering the other magical features of the Mansion and we will plan another trip soon.”

Highlight was having H as our personal bartender and getting the opportunity to chat with her. Also, learning about the connection between Rosa Parks and civil rights. Learned so many interesting interesting things and had a ball!! Cannot wait to do another tour here!”

“Technically it was really well-done, flawless. And not all zooms are. Knowing this was your first hybrid... you nailed it!Dan Navarro is a superb workshop leader, songwriter, performer and human being. He knows how to teach and build community in the process, and how to provide useful guidance while supporting and building confidence in all in the workshop. He makes learning so much fun, for everyone! Quite masterful. Thanks so much for doing!!”

Cindy Davis from DanFam, on May 24, 2021 said:

“I attended Dan Navarro's "Songwriting and the Creative Muse" songwriting workshop, and it was amazing. Dan was kind and welcoming while providing meaningful feedback, and I learned so much. The hybrid Zoom and in-person format worked great (I attended via Zoom). Any time you have Dan back for this workshop, either in person or virtually, I want to sign up! :) Thank you so much!”

Kristin Wenzler on May 19, 2021 said:

“This was a great find!! We were visiting from out of town and struggled to find activities due to covid closures. This was a FANTASTIC find. We had a great time searching through rooms, looking for secret doors and viewing all the pieces in the museum. We had two kids, 8 & 10 and they LOVED it. We went back through and relooked at some of our favorite rooms and items. Definitely would recommend. You could go again and again and always see something new, I'm positive. It would be amazing to spend a night here!!”

Julie Butterbaugh on May 12, 2021 said:

“I took out of state guests here for our event and everyone loved their experience! We were given a genuine welcome and left to our own devices to explore. 3 hours later we still hadn't covered even half of it, so we'll be going back for sure! If you haven't been here, you need to experience it! I've never seen anything quite like the Mansion!”

“Had an absolute blast!”

Morgan Schmidtke on May 9, 2021 said:

“Everyone went above and beyond. We spoke with the chef downstairs and he took the time to tell us the story of the kitchen painting and make our experience magical! Isaac also got excited about the doors we found with us as well as another young gentleman who showed us the gardens outside! We think we spoke with the lady who was the manager as well (forgive us for not catching your name!) and she made our experience warm and welcoming! My grandma also marveled at how clean everything b was and how we couldn't find a dust bunny anywhere in the whole museum! We spoke with the nice cleaning lady (also didn't get her name) who took pride in making the museum a home! We found 34 doors (this was our second visit, and we know of more doors in some of the rooms that were rented out)! Our grandma (whose first visit it was) raves about the experience. She has already started to plan a return visit and wants to tell all of her friends. We had an absolute blast! The added challenge of the hidden gem Hunt was good too! My husband took it seriously and counted every single item he could find... up to 110 angels!! What an adventure!! ”

Carol Schlef on May 9, 2021 said:

Roger Sherman from The District Pit, on Apr 24, 2021 said:

“My wife and I attended a book signing by Brianna Thomas. Author of Black Broadway in Washington, DC. The artist spoked about her book, the experience of writing it, why she wrote it and then took questions from the audience. This event was profession, entertaining and meaningful in todays environment. The event was a socially distant event that took place in a converted garage! It was beautiful, spacious and airy. My wife and I felt comfortable the whole time we were there. We also had a chance to walk thought the secret garden. A true oasis in the middle of the city.”

“What an amazing place! Fantastic building, more memorabilia and art and odd furnishing plus more than you could ever imagine. The walls are literally covered with artwork. The secret door tour (self guided) was so much fun. We found 8 of 70. We live in the area, work in DC, and can not believe we had never been before. Also, we appreciated the steps to stay COVID safe -- excellent job.”

Mache Chase on Apr 5, 2021 said:

“This experience was amazing! We found 22/70 hidden doors. The host told us he'd only found 42 and he's been working there for about 2 years so I'm super impressed with the hidden spots. If you have an opportunity please stop by! There's a pool table, scrabble, and chess for guests to play. Hand sanitizer is located throughout.”

Sue Adezio on Apr 4, 2021 said:

Morgan Schmidtke on Mar 14, 2021 said:

“So. Much. Fun. My husband and I loved hunting for doors together and pointing out interesting items. There were several dream-building pieces that we want in the future (that glass table and ornate chess set was incredible)!! We had so much fun taking a few hints too. My husband is an architectural draftsman so my favorite part was when he was counting how many townhouses wide we had gone and said, "We are missing some space," before we found a secret door to another section of the houses! We had a BLAST. Thank you to the team there!!”

Ward Biggs on Mar 14, 2021 said:

Mary Sawyer on Jan 24, 2021 said:

“3rd time I've visited the Mansion, bringing different friends each time. This time was the best. Adding the video prior to exploring is great. It's difficult to explain all the nuances adequately, so the video is very helpful in doing that. Reubin our host was awesome. Another gentleman arriving later was awesome also. It's good to understand the concept of the hidden doors better, thanks to our hosts. We actually found more than originally thought when including stained glass & closets. We spent hours leisurely exploring the first 3 floors, took a champagne break, then finished the tour with the lower level. Great way to spend a few hours on a cold, winter Saturday. Visiting the Mansion never disappoints.”

Krystal Oliver on Dec 29, 2020 said:

“What an amazing family outing. We went here for our Christmas family get away. The lay out was a bit challenging to maneuver but in a good way. (there are elevators if the stairs get to be too much. I just slowed down and let my (adult) kids go ahead of me.. ) My son was able to find at least 60 of the 70 doors. The wine area was one of the best spots for me. You must go there and just take in the ambiance. I love the Rosa Parks room and the Michael Jackson tribute. There was also a shout out to the great icon Prince!!! I do encourage you to take advantage of the parking. We were not able to park on the street and found the spot online that was walking distance. The neighborhood is eye catching and the walk was refreshing. I can go on and on.. just go its worth it.”

Michele Hopkins on Dec 29, 2020 said:

“ First off, I have to tell you that the staff did such an incredible job fixing up the garage. We had a magical time (and encouraged H's husband to please keep the room up and keep using it - a real treasure.) The transformation from Monday to Thursday was unbelievable. So, our thanks for making such a memorable evening for our group. We had a ball.Second, thank Jameel for the most delicious meal. We were absolutely wowed! From start to finish no detail was left out. Please thank him and the kitchen staff.”

I highly recommend anyone with lots of time on the hands and curiosity for adventure to come to the O St Mansion”

“OMGosh! This place is amazing!!! There are no words to describe the O Mansion. This is a very unique experience and one I have never come across. The staff is polite and knowledgeable. The "quest" is exciting and fun, especially once you start finding those hidden doors!! There are over 100 rooms and over 80 hidden doors to find. However, the crowning gem itself is the hotel/museum and all the wonderful items and memorabilia you get to look at while searching!”

Lexy Burnett on Nov 12, 2020 said:

“Wow, just WOW! As a huge history buff, this activity definitely piqued my interests but it also played with my sense of wonder and definitely brought out my inner-child. Beyond my expectations, this mansion is a never ending maze of memorabilia and secret passageways where you will always end up somewhere new and exciting! The tour starts with a warm welcome and an informational video, then you set off on an experience of a lifetime. We found at least 10 doors, even accidentally found a whole other door/section on our way out!! I definitely plan on coming back to take some more time to really look around at the literature and art work more in-depth since everything is for sale. Thank you for having us and we will see you again soon!”

Treca Allen on Nov 11, 2020 said:

Sean Huie on Oct 26, 2020 said:

“Magical experience! I went with my best friend on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Robert was an awesome docent. He ensured we found the secret wine cellar. I must warn you though, it can be a bit overwhelming at times with all the memorabilia. Things that come to mind without specific spoilers (old magazines and newspapers, guitars, baseball cards, paintings and much more) one of the best kept secrets in D.C.!”

Kate on Oct 19, 2020 said:

Everyone of my friends thanks me for finding your place, it was extraordinary, we forgot about everything, even finding the doors was not the main point for the first time, We were looking at all the stuff! Sincerely, one of my best birthdays in my life (and since 22nd I make extraordinary). They all say we will remember it. ”

Larry M on Sep 29, 2020 said:

“THIS PLACE IS AMAZEBALLZ!! IMHO, the BEST place to stay in DC! I would refer to it as a "Destination Hotel/Museum". Took my GF here for her Birthday on a Wednesday. We had the place almost to ourselves! Not Just A Hotel, Not Just A Museum, but all that and more! Beatles Memorabilia (signed) Everywhere! Guitars in every room! Each Room Is Themed differently and Luxury Abounds! We went for "a night at the museum". We also splurged for the Personal Chef Dinner. We were served an amazing dinner (customized for us-there is no menu). Each course was more delicious than the last! The service was IMPECCABLE! We were treated like visiting dignitaries! I can't stop expounding on just how awesome it was!! Rosa Parks Herself lived there. There's a "Rosa Parks Room".We Had The Most Amazing Vacation and didn't even leave DC! Thank You Lady H! Thank You Robert and everyone else who made this one of my favorite nights in years!! I Recommend This In The Highest Order!”

Tracy Postell on Sep 14, 2020 said:

“What an absolute extravaganza at the big 0!!! From the moment we entered and throughout our wonderful stay we felt as though we tripped and fell down a rabbit hole. The entire staff created an environment of wonderment from which we danced and giggled our way up and down, in and out with a few skips and jumps. A most magical special place. So happy we stumbled into the big 0!!! ”

Anthony Salinas on Aug 3, 2020 said:

“I cannot begin to describe how great our visit to the 0 Street museum was. After searching for a fun and interactive activity for my group of friends, I came across this fun adventure. The booking process was extremely easy and the staff was beyond amazing. We spent a total of 4 hours touring the home, finding hidden doors, and experiencing the rich history this museum offers. I plan to book a room in the future (as a staycasion) to continue to explore and immerse myself into the true art that this place is.Highly recommend!”

Polina Chernomorets on Aug 3, 2020 said:

“ Fun place to explore. Five interconnected brownstones with lots of secret passages and a cool eclectic interior with a lot of for sale items. Extremely fun to visit with kids and search for secret doors. They also had a free musical concert the day we visited and have lots of events there on a daily basis. A bit touristy but still fun. ”

Andrew Zimdahl on Aug 3, 2020 said:

“The Mansion on O Street is an iconoclastic DC landmark. Home to historical figures as diverse as J Edgar Hoover and Rosa Parks, this is a very special place. I have attended many wonderful events here and hope to attend many more soon!”

Mindy Logar on Jul 23, 2020 said:

“This is a hidden DC gem. This last visit (of many) was my first with kids. They thought they would be bored, but their first step into the mansion changed that immediately. They were amazed that they could touch things and that they would be searching for hidden doors throughout the mansion. They ran around like little sleuths and they were excited every tine they found a new door. I have discovered something, new rooms, new hidden doors, every time I have come and I highly recommend this spot. I have not yet had a chance to do an event or a brunch here but I hope to in the future.”

Rochelle Anderson on Mar 18, 2020 said:

“Wow. You think you know museums, but until you have been here you don't know what is still out there. This was a truly unusual and great experience in an old mansion filled with secrets and hidden doors and passages. After your welcome and orientation you set off on your own to try to find your way in all directions. Gently push a panel and you are surprised to find more. The spaces are all beautifully decorated from floor to ceilings (look up) and shelves 3 deep. The pin ball machines even work. You will get lost which is part of the fun. Fear not, sooner or later you will find a staircase or elevator to re-orient. It is easy to spend several hours, but you still won't see it all! It kinda leaves you planning for more on another visit.”

Shannon Fosdal on Mar 15, 2020 said:

Rhonda Dallachiesa on Mar 12, 2020 said:

“First of all, the champagne was yummy( this is from someone who doesn't care for champagne) Mr Ted was extremely helpful to me in getting my car parked and offered to us a lot of information in such a short period of time and seemed happy to have us there. Robert was as nice and helpful as Mr Ted. You can truly tell how much he enjoys being there. The museum was more than amazing, and the collections incredible! Madame H was so kind and warm to us and took the time to personally autograph our books and seemed interested in our lives. It was a magical experience and we can't wait to return and bring our friends with us!”

Rebecca Blankenship on Mar 6, 2020 said:

“Fabulous adventure in an amazing building. The amount of art and unique objects was astounding. So many turns and hidden passageways that it was easy to get lost. One would think this would be a bit overwhelming but it was more of a cozy feel. Like staying at an eccentric aunts home. Time slips away among the artifacts and books. It would be wonderful to just stay and read in one of the rooms.”

Tammy Ghizzoni on Feb 21, 2020 said:

“My son and I explored the mansion for two hours. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the mansion and would recommend it to anyone who likes sleuthing around. I wasn't sure we would find any doors, but we were excited to count nine doors before we finally made our way back to the main floor (one we didn't go through as it housed a creepy doll and led into the depths of the eves...) The contents and history of the mansion are impressive. Thank you for this hidden gem! I am so happy we stumbled upon this during our final day in the DC area! ”

David Sacks on Feb 21, 2020 said:

“My second visit and brought my cousin Carol along with me, who also ended up loving it as much as I do! I also had the great fortune and pleasure to meet lady H who was a gracious and yet accessible hostess for the time that we were able to spend with her. Robert our young host / docent, made our visit that much more pleasurable! Not only was he able to help us with a couple of purchases that I made (which I shall cherish for a long time) he was charming, cheerful and knowledgeable about this amazing home, event space and boutique hotel as well!!”

The food was delicious! I look forward ,without a doubt, to my next visit to the museum, one will never get tired of this enchanting experience! ”

Terri NIMMONS on Feb 17, 2020 said:

“Amazing as always! I bring everyone I love to the Mansion and I'm in awe each time. Yesterday, I saw new rooms (12th visit!) and beautiful new artifacts, art and historical memorabilia. I had brought along a 21-year old friend of my daughter's: she was mesmerized throughout our 2 hour visit. O always lifts my spirits and expands my knowledge. ”

What a wonderful building with so much history. I look forward to coming back. Thank you so much.”

“What a fun day out! For anyone willing to explore, this place is awesome. You just have to give yourself over to not worrying about the time, a map, whether you are missing something - just go with it, open your eyes, and pay attention to the incredible things around you. From floor, to ceiling, to shelf this place if filled with incredible objects. Sure, there is the famous stuff - signed guitars, famous people's photos, but we got also got excited about old recipe books, vintage hair dryers, cool shaped bathtubs and the list goes on. It was awesome.”

Rudy D'Alessandro on Jan 20, 2020 said:

“Being a resident of the DC area for nearly 35 years, this was shockingly my and my wife's f visit to the Mansion on O Street. Even though my wife prefers an uncluttered home, we were both blown away by the opulent decor, and especially impressed with all the beautiful guitars, true works of art. As for the venue being a home to intimate music concerts, it's really a treat to be so close to the music and the musicians. While we both prefer rock musicians playing rock music to play it loud, we understand that had Lez Zeppelin cranked it up to even half the level of a club show, your chandeliers might have come crashing down. . All in all, this is a true DC gem that we're so happy to have belatedly discovered and we look forward to returning for future musical events.”

We will be recommending to our friends and family and highly recommend that everyone take a journey into the past. We will be back! Thank you H for making this a possibility!”

Caitrine Callison from Secondi, on Jan 4, 2020 said:

“My staff and I recently went to The Mansion on O Street to celebrate the holidays. I have hosted Christmas dinners for my staff for over 30 years; in that time we have been to many of the best restaurants in Washington, but of all of these, O Street ranks at the top. We loved it. For the better part of an hour we were invited to explore the mansion/museum and see how many of the 80+ secret doors we could find (I found four). We wandered through the three floors in total awe. Everywhere we looked were amazing displays. We spotted the black and white dress (the actual one!) that Audrey Hepburn wore in "My Fair Lady." There were guitars signed by the Rolling Stones, there was a note from John Lennon, and on and on. We were met by several servers carrying appetizer trays who pointed us in various directions. And this was all before dinner! Our table was set in a long private room with beautiful chandeliers. Our food came promptly and was lovely. The chef accommodated all of our requests -- vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, anchovy-averse, et cetera -- and it was very impressive, delicious, and plentiful. The only problem was that our room looked out on the dessert buffet -- with a chocolate fountain. We loved our dinner but we needed to assess the dessert table and give it proper attention. And we did.I do not remember a meal more filled with laughter and all-out happiness. To rate this venue, I would give the meal and the menu five stars but for the owners I would give many more stars. H and Ted were the most gracious hosts and I need to explain what they did that went above and beyond. On a rainy night I arrived with my car loaded with gifts for the staff and didn't think to mention ahead of time that I would need a valet. I handed my key to H and learned when I left that evening that she had taken it upon herself to park my car for me. Not only this but when we were packing the car to leave my battery died. Ted came out (after a long day working and a long night and day ahead of him) and jump-started my car. He could not have been more gracious. He was just wonderful.Perhaps I should have been more brief, but the O Street Mansion is one of a kind and the owners are a rare breed. Just when you think civility is dead -- you need to meet H and Ted.”

Blue Galvan on Jan 3, 2020 said:

“Super enjoyable experience! Loved how fun it was for both adults and children. As two adults going in for some New Years Eve fun we definitely enjoyed the drinks that were there & the pool room they had after finding all of the secret passage doors! super interesting & recommend anyone with an adventurous heart to go!”

Trina Walsh on Jan 3, 2020 said:

“The Mansion on O Street is an amazing place that offered an experience for my guest and me that could not be replicated anywhere else (in the area--or anywhere). While the "finding doors" challenge was intriguing for a while, the experience was so much more; finding a way to immerse oneself in the environment and take in the quirky stuff/decor/thematic splendor was the best part (along with the pinball machines, of course). The two hosts (who were not, to the best of my knowledge, any of the listed individuals) were gracious and helpful throughout.”

Kelly Rose on Jan 3, 2020 said:

“We were mesmerized with the mansion, it's history & care! Kudos to the accommodating staff, you were entertaining, kind & ever so helpful. We enjoyed finding all the hidden doors & delights for hours which proved just perfect on a rainy day. The wine cave may have been our favorite! Thank you again, we will recommend a visit & book again when back in the area. Cheers! ”

We had four adults and a twelve year old and we were all entertained for hours on so many different levels. We explored, laughed, and learned together while still finding moments for yourself to be entertained.”

David Willson on Dec 31, 2019 said:

“My wife and I had an amazing experience here. And we were elated to find out that everything in the home was for sale, so we walked out with some unique Christmas gifts as well. Finding the hidden doors and cubbies was a ton of fun. We only found 17 however. There are a lot more than that.”

I've been traveling the world for 55 years, which includes 23 countries, and I've never been surrounded by such and eclectic gathering of memorabilia and incredible vibes. Floor after floor and room after room are loaded with the most unique and valuable treasures. The intimate setting where Jesse Colin Young played was perfect. 75 chairs filled with enthusiastic followers and first time believers.This is a MUST place to visit and support.Thank you, Ted.A memory forever.”

“This was such a fun way to spend a couple hours in DC! There's so much to see it's easily something you can go to again and again. The staffs knowledge of the incredible amount of memorabilia was amazing. Who wouldn't like feeling like they're apart of their own little mystery adventure!?”

“This place is AMAZING! If you get the chance to go, go! It was a once in a lifetime experience. I feel like you could go countless times and see something different every time. We only found 12 doors but just being immersed in the place's incredible history was worth going.”

“We really enjoyed the mansion! Seeing all the different rooms and memorabilia was really interesting and a lot of fun. We only found about 5 doors and felt like we were walking in circles at times, but the experience was definitely worth it!”

“The museum was amazing and totally one-of-a-kind! It is a hidden gem in D.C. that deserves much more recognition than it has. It's a place that I now want to bring any visiting guests.”

“The o street mansion offers the unique experience to live out everyone's childhood dream of exploring a vast mansion with secret passages. It however also to my surprise was full of historical significance ,knowledge and memorabilia which is ALL available for purchase. The only letdown for me is that I didn't find all the doors!!, but I'll definitely be back. ”

“What a hidden gem! This is a crazy, wonderful, secret hotel and museum. We did the Espionage Treasure Hunt, and really appreciated that it made us slow down and enjoy the space. Our family spent two hours, but easily could have spent the day. Love that the purchase of art and collectibles supports the arts. Our 19 year old son joined us. He is a difficult one to impress. He was impressed. Now we are hoping to book a room when we visit next year. The owners and staff were delightful people, as well. ”

“What a magnificent day I enjoyed with my 7 year old granddaughter. We were excited to find 26 doors on our first visit. More visits will definitely be on our agenda. ”

Molly on Aug 21, 2019 said:

“We had so much fun! There was so much to see and the rooms were filled with such interesting memorabilia. We found around 10 hidden doors and those were great. We took our time and really enjoyed it. Would like to come back for dinner or some other tour and bring our friends. Staff were friendly and there was a good vibe. Very cool place. ”

“My 11 year old nephew and I had such a fun time searching the mansion for secret doors and exploring the rooms. We cant wait to come back and find more doors! This was a great alternative to the usual museums and a great way to spend some tome together. ”

Courtney Owens on Aug 15, 2019 said:

“I brought 3 twelve year old girls and they had an absolute blast at the mansion. Such a memorable day! The owners could not be any nicer and went out of their way to make the girls feel special. This is the place for you if you have a creative, fun and open mind. This is not the place for anyone who has a closed mind ”

Nurani Chandra on Aug 15, 2019 said:

“The experience was beyond our expectation. The thrill of finding the secret doors was even better. We spent nearly 2 hours available to us but probably Would have required another 4 to go over all the collections. Amazing indeed.”

Dan on Aug 12, 2019 said:

“My parents were in town to visit, and I did not know what to think about the Mansion ahead of time. We had a wonderful time exploring this truly unique house/museum. Finding 6 secret doors is not bad, right? I would highly recommend this activity for anyone - tourist or local - as a great excursion in DC that keeps you thinking rather than just looking.”

Jodie on Aug 11, 2019 said:

“Fun place to spend an afternoon with the family. ”

Andrew Kowal, MD on Aug 10, 2019 said:

“It was simply an amazing experience for us and our children. They still haven't stopped talking about it and already want to return to DC just so they can find more hidden secret doors. Thank you !”

Shannon T. on Jul 31, 2019 said:

“My family did the Secret Door tour. My husband and I loved looking at all the items for sale and looking for the secret doors. Our two teenagers noted that it was the best part of their trip to Washington. My daughter would love to live there. I highly recommend visiting. If you are taking your children to many of the museums it would be great to break it up and plan a visit to the Mansion on O Street in the middle of your trip. ”
