What you'll do

In a city synonymous with backroom dealing, hidden doors and secret passages this self-guided experience might not seem that far-fetched. We are a 110 room magical mystery museum and mansion, with over 80 secret doors.

Stretching between five interconnected townhouses in Dupont Circle, this former FBI hideout-turned immersive museum holds a cache of treasures waiting to be found behind it’s secret doors and hidden passageways — including unique architecture, antiques, paintings, sculptures, signed guitars, memorabilia, and much more.

This is a self-guided tour. We’d never spoil the fun by giving you a map, either; getting lost in one of DC's most unique landmarks and finding your own way is exactly the point. You can’t get found until you get lost.

We are rated by the Smithsonian as the “Top 5 historic venues to explore — in the world” and the only place in the U.S that they put on their list!

You'll be treated to a sip of Jack Daniels. There will also be a cash bar with Speakeasy Signature Drinks and snacks available for purchase.

Oh, and be sure to be on the lookout for things you love, nearly everything you see is for sale — so bring your own shopping bag to carry your new found treasures home. Or know we can ship them to you.

MUSEUM CLOSES AT 9pm

Children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Hidden gem in DC! We had so much fun. It’s impossible to find everything so we look forward to coming back next year and trying it out again! 10/10 would recommend.

Thank goodness it was empty, i can’t imagine maneuvering with more people. Will definitely remember this, but not for the right reasons. If you like 80s decor, you’ll love this place!

My girlfriend and I visited our first night in DC. Both of us love puzzles and mysteries. This exceeded our expectations. We meticulously went through each room looking for trap doors and hidden objects. Time flew! It was also really cool that you could buy almost anything there including some of the most prized artifacts. Would highly recommend to my friends!

I had a wonderful time, it was a little busy which mean it was hard to hear the video or the speaker. But we got enough to do our best. Hidden doors , yup we did not even find 10% of them. Def considering doing it again. The package welcome you with a glass of Daniela, would have been great if other type of liquor was offer.
