International Spy Museum

If you've ever wanted to step into James Bond's shoes and live a glamorous spy life, the International Spy Museum is the place to learn the secrets. One of Washington DC's hottest attractions, the museum is flashy—an engaging experience that illustrates high-tech gadgetry, notorious spy cases, secret methods and the not-so-pleasant consequences of being an international person of mystery.

The much-acclaimed museum of espionage gives spy fans their fill of cool gadgets and interactive displays. All visitors are invited to play the role of a secret agent by adopting a cover at the start of their visit. Throughout the museum, work to identify disguises, listen to bugs and spot hidden cameras. Many of the exhibits are historical, focusing on the Cold War in particular (a recreation of the tunnel under the Berlin Wall is an eerie winner).

In addition, the museum hosts a huge range of special activities including KidSpy Overnight, a spy-themed slumber party, and Spy at Night, a themed hour-long role-play/puzzle challenge for adults.

Practical Info

The International Spy museum is located on F Street NW, near the J Edgar Hoover FBI Building and the National Archives. The museum is accessible by metro and bus. Keep in mind, the museum is extremely popular with kids, and lines form early to get in. There's also a shop with everything you need for your next secret mission.
