What You Can Expect

Washington DC Tour of Ford's Theatre, FBI Headquarters and International Spy Museum


Meet your guide and small group at the US Navy Memorial and walk a short distance to Ford's Theatre, the famous venue where President Lincoln was assassinated in 1865. Your energetic guide will bring the events of that fateful day to life through dramatic narration as you take exterior photos of the historic old theater.

Next, make your way to the J Edgar Hoover Building, which houses the headquarters of the FBI. As you stand before the imposing structure, learn about the history of this investigative and counterintelligence agency and the techniques it uses to crack cases.

Your tour culminates with an in-depth visit to the International Spy Museum. Marvel at its massive collection of espionage artifacts spanning 200 years, and listen to your guide share facts, anecdotes and legends about the world of espionage. Your 2.5-hour tour concludes at the museum so you can linger longer or use your ticket to reenter the museum later the same day.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

We absolutely loved the spy museum. Our guide tailored the tour to the three of us, as we were the only people. He included my 12 and 15 year olds input. He asked questions, and got them really engaged.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2014

While the tour guide was very good and best during our Spy Museum portion of the morning...we over all felt disappointed since the title of your tour infers that you would actually experience inside (see title of your tour) which includes the words "...Tour of Ford's Theater, FBI Headquarters and...". Trust you did not intend to miss lead the public and the other two tours we took were excellent we felt our comment was fair and helpful to you.
