The only public museum in the world devoted solely to espionage, the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. opened in July of 2002. Its mission is to provide the public with an objective education about the important political, social, and historical function of espionage. Most spies – even those who have significantly impacted international events in the 20th century – remain unknown, even after their deaths. Their stories and strategies have often played priceless roles in both peace and wartime, and a visit to this museum allows one to delve deeper into this mysterious world of intelligence, deceit, and wit.
