museum guest peers through library

O Museum in The Mansion is a non-profit museum in Dupont Circle and is woman-founded and run.


2-3 Hours

O Wow

We have over 80 secret doors, immersive-themed rooms, and the most unique collection of artifacts in the country. Here you’ll find something for everyone: from a photography exhibit that opened at the “World Peace Festival” to a running shoe worn by Allyson Felix at the Olympics, to Miss USA’s Crown, and over 60 signed guitars from music greats like Bono, Bruce Springsteen, and Britney Spears. Our exhibits rotate and our newest is a fashion exhibit that includes an outfit Prince wore on tour, and dresses worn by June Carter Cash and Grammy-winner Emmylou Harris when she was inducted to Grand Ole Oprey .

We are a historic site on the African American Heritage trail. Mrs. Rosa Parks, the Mother of the Civil Rights movement, called The Mansion her home-away-from-home for nearly 10 years as part of our Heroes-in-residence program. You can see her room exactly as it was when she lived here as well as artifacts she gave to the Museum. Mrs. Parks was a mentor to our founder, HH Leonards and has written several books on the impact Mrs. Rosa Parks had on her and the world.

The Mansion is a sanctuary for creatives of all kinds and inspires creativity, diversity and imagination through the fusion of the arts, music, science and sports. We empower people to dare to be different — and achieve things beyond what they know

Visiting the O Museum directly benefits our arts and social justice programs including our artist and heroes in residence programs, 51 Steps to Freedom, Healing through music & storytelling, and arts & literature programs.
