Depart early this morning when you board your Starr Tours Motorcoach for Washington, DC. Today, you visit the Mansion on O Street, one of the most unique properties in the world. Meticulously designed with style & imagination the site retains many period details — including original tiffany stained glass windows and wood carvings. Ultra-private and secure, the Museum offers a variety of themed rooms & suites, each uniquely decorated with fine art, antiques and furnishings from around the world. A haven for CEOs, rock stars, celebrities, and politicians, they offer privacy, security, world-class cuisine, and extraordinary service all in an environment that is nothing short of magical.
Steeped in history, it was converted into rooming houses for Hoover’s G-men in the ’30s. In the ’60s Norman Mailer documented that student leaders of the protest movement lived there. From 1994 to 2003 it served as Mrs. Rosa Parks home-away-from-home and is a designated historic site on the African American Heritage Trail.
Included with your visit is the Secret Door Tour. Find your way through secret doors and covert passages to a world never experienced. You’ll be walking in the footsteps of presidents and freedom fighters, historians and fiction writers.
On this self-guided tour, volunteers will treat you to an in-depth history of the museum’s philosophy, building, secret doors and what to look for as you head out on your super sleuth adventure. With over 100 rooms and 70 secret doors (yes 70!) the museum guarantees you can see at least 60 of the legendary rooms — but be warned secret doors are tricky to find —if you find 2 or 3 you are an above average sleuth. Bring your own shopping bags. Everything is for sale!
Lunch is also included today with your visit to the O Museum in the Mansion. Enjoy sumptuous surroundings, superb service and exceptional fine dining.
This afternoon you also visit the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. The museum describes itself as America’s official repository for self-taught and intuitive artistry. The permanent collection is described as a Bling Universe where art reflects life, both literally and figuratively. Adorning one’s world – transforming it into a place that defies convention, surprising and delighting, providing hope and wonder – is what the Bling Universe is all about.
Depart for home after your visit.
