The Cottage shows the humanity and responsibility we all have to fight for justice.
This place reminded me of my responsibility as a citizen and keeper of my nation.
The exhibit changed me. I am substantively different as a result.
Especially during this time of unease and uncertainty of the future, these reflections are of the utmost importance.
I love bringing people here. Stimulates great discussion and I always learn something new.
When was the last time a museum left you with such introspection?
This is a spiritual experience like none I’ve ever had.
It’s a hidden treasure. In one of the most inspiring but trying times, I experienced an appreciation of our nation in a way that no other place in DC can do.
