“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 tattoo you across my ..., for advertising purposes, so the uninitiated can experience you. ” –Babszee from me inc.

“It was my second trip to the museum, because I had to bring more friends and family after my first experience there. What a uniquely fun day! The museum re-ignites the wonder of childhood, fascination for history and nostalgia, and passion for creativity, music and books. All my favorite things!! Thank you for another memorable visit!” –Elizabeth Shoop

During quarantine a lot of us were using that time to discover shows and movies we just hadn't had the time to watch yet. Nurse Jackie was one of the shows our President became obsessed with, only to remember we had this awesome signed script by the cast!

What shows did you binge during quarantine? Tell us bellow 👇

This is a rare photograph of Marilyn Monroe before her acting career in Hollywood had completely taken off. You may notice her hair is still long and has not been dyed her signature blonde yet.

All people have lives before we know them. They bring that experience and beauty and pain with them when they come into our lives. And we learn what we can from it. Who were you before you were you?

Hi, I emailed you all maybe a month or two ago. I wanted to know if you all had a picture of artwork drawn on February 14th of this year that did not win, so it was not posted. If you could assist that would be great. My email is [email protected]
My Favorite place.in DC for Sunday Brunch or just walking around. Awesome.

I have stayed at this INCREDIBLE Hotel
Hello H, I've been to The Mansion on O Street many times, when I lived in DC. And have taken every person who ever came to visit there too. I love it and what you do and how you do it. I'm sure you wouldn't remember, but we've talked a few times. My favorite was a story about a man that showed up there on Christmas Eve. So I hope you will allow me to share this with you and your fans. This is my friend Kathryn Cloward. She works tirelessly for her heart centered mission to ripple love, compassion and unity. She has given life to many mindful love and kindness programs, through music, art and charity. As Kathryn the Grape, she has created a series of multi-generational books and songs that contain a treasure trove of tools of love, to last a lifetime. http://kathrynthegrape.com/ Through the Kathryn Cloward Band's "Songs for Charity" program, she helps charities raise awareness for their causes by creating, performing and recording songs with meaningful messages. http://kathrynclowardband.com/ Now she needs a little help, to help others. She is working with the MPS Society to breathe life into a song called "Heroes" to help shine a light on children with MPS, a disease that has NO cure. Proceeds from the song will go to the MPS Society. Whether or not you are able to donate, I would really appreciate you sending this on to your family, friends and co-workers. http://kandoncares.org/heroes Thank you! Geri
What an awesome experience. I can’t wait to come back and see more. If I lived here I would be there all the time. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.
