Super experience. I made up my own kid scavenger hunt in a top secret envelope for grandsons, ages 5/9, to complete. Completed spy tasks earned them a prize at the gift shop. It was a lot of fun.
Interesting place for those into the whole 'get smart' tv shows and James Bond type film lovers. However I was curious by the whole museum and had an appreciation of being a spy. Interactive place allowing you to do things inside and touch. Great exhibits and overall interesting. All nearby to the other museums so plan ahead and allow 1 hour if you rush it or 2-3 hours for a good experience.
My grandson and I had a great time at the Spy Museum. The next day we went to the Crime Museum and enjoyed that, as well.
Though not one of the free tours in Washington, DC, it is worth the discounted admission (via Viator) price to go through the history of significant espionage events in America and abroad. You learn about how espionage helped in the American Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI and WWII and other American conflicts. To top it off, you get a comprehensive exhibit of all of James Bonds' movie, including each movie's summary, villains, plots and Q and A. Lastly, the tour ends with the museum's store where you can purchase your favorite espionage souvenier...like Spy vs Spy T-Shirts, James Bond movie posters, etc...Don't miss this tour when you are in DC.
This was an amazing museum the kids loved it and was great for adults too!
Best part was buying the ticket on this site saved us from waiting in a long line to get in!
Would do it again so much to see.
My wife and I went to the musuem two years ago and thought we would spend around one hour looking around and found ourselves spending almost three and a half hours there.
This year we went with our fifteen year oul twin grandsons and also spent over three hours. We have recommended the Spy Musuem to all our friends with grandchildren and assured them that it would be one of the best times spent in Washington.

Our family had a awesome time at the Spy Museum. We loved seeing all the espionage gadgets and hear how the spies did their work. We loved seeing the James Bond cars on display and saw how they worked.
I would definitely suggest this museum to anyone visiting Washington D.C.
Good Stuff...Fascinating...How many spy cameras are inside the building?
Very enjoyable and informative. 12-year-old grandson enjoyed seeing all the "old" spy stuff, but was a bit unsettled by the cyber spying and cyber attack potential. It made for a good discussion about what we were and could be doing to combat this type attack. Well worth a visit.
This is a another great museum! If you are a spy nerd and are fascinated by espionage and intellegence gathering, this is the museum for you. The museum store is fun too.
