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.
What a great set up. Amazing gadgets and interesting exhibits. He whole family loved the Spy Museum and were glad we went.
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.
We went on a rainy morning which was perfect, had a lot of interactive exhibits, lots of artifacts and history too. Lots of fun!
My parents were in town and wanted to visit the Spy Museum. I just recently joined History and I was thrilled to find discount admission. I was happy to know that I had an email copy of my tickets on my smart phone because I accidentally left the printed hard copy at home. No problem! We had a wonderful time and my father was delighted with the whole museum experience. Thank you for a very memorable day!
The spy museum was incredible. Seeing how the invisible side of our security works was a unique experience. I strongly recommend a visit when in Washington DC
The visit to the International Spy Museum was enjoyable, educational, and a bit overwhelming. We had a wonderful time and would recommend the museum to our friends.
The content in the museum is very good and different to anything I've seen elsewhere although we found the 'pretend you're a spy' feature as waste of time especially as no member of staff approached our large group to 'question' us.
If you're into spy movies and espionage then it's worth a visit but the question is with so many free museums in Washington do you really want to pay to visit this museum?
This is a great museum for all the information and all the interaction. My 14 year old loved it and all the 007 stuff was fun. This is a must see museum in the area and then you have all the great restaurants around you.
My kids had a great time. My 8 yr old daughter for a little scared during the movie portion but it was just suspenseful nothing violent.
This museum was really nice! I had family visit for the summer and I have to be honest I would recommend this tour for older children. The older kids 10 and 11 year old really enjoyed the entire museum but the 6 and 5 year old found it pretty hard to stay focused. Good thing 6 and under are free.
It was really fun. I love knowing interesting facts like these. And at the end all the cool James Bond section. My family aren't museum people, so this was a great break from the usal Washington museums. Also the brewery and resturant across the steet is awesome also, it's an old bank.
My husband and sons absolutely love this museum, and I like it very much. They can spend a lot more time here than I am interested in, but that's just because they are completely obsessed with espionage and spy history. That said, we would definitely return.
It was very hands on and interesting. Never knew that Julia Childs was a spy ! No issues keeping my cover identity points in mind - passed with 100% accuracy ! Would be interesting to do it as a family or with a group of friends.
My son and I loved this museum. He loved the activities there and I loved the nostalgia of all the James Bond movies and learning that some of the gadgets were not far off. It was truly amazing of all the cool stuff that they had in there.
Our 10 year old son really enjoyed this museum and so did we. The first room where one can explore on your own was his favorite, with the most interactive displays and activities. None of us are huge James Bond fans but the exhibit was still interesting to us. The videos were very interesting.
Three teenagers went they loved how interactive it was. Stuff was so closer together that made it a bit overwhelming. I liked how they had all of the historical spy info on one level and the made up spy stuff on another level so i could compare the two.
This was interesting and fun. There were two lines: one to buy the tickets; one to wait with tickets to enter the exhibit. Total wait time at 2:30 was about 45 minutes. I think you can buy tickets ahead of time, not just vouchers. Our vouchers required us to stand in both lines. There is a lot of info available, so our challenge was slowing down the younger brother, and speeding up the older brother. If you have a die-hard spy fan, you may want to give them more time.
I didn't realize it was going to be such a tribute to the James Bond Movies, but it was tasteful.
The exhibit showing the rectal cavity hiding capsule was a bit much...I'm glad my 11 year old didn't see that.
More to it than what we figured. Plan to spend at least 2 hours to take most of it in. Maybe more if the kids want to do some of the interactive things.
Very crowded during the time we went, but enjoyed the experience.
