  • Admission ticket to Washington DC's International Spy Museum
  • See gadgets, weapons, bugs, cameras, vehicles, and technologies used for espionage
  • Adopt a cover identity and test your spy skills throughout the museum
  • Travel back in time to learn about past spies and unlikely undercover agents
The International Spy Museum in Washington, DC is the only museum in the United States entirely dedicated to espionage. It’s also the only one in the world that provides a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession that has helped to not only shape history, but also have a significant impact on world events.

Upon entering the building, adopt a cover identity and learn why an agent needs one. Then self-test spy skills while browsing the museum’s artifacts, spy gadgets, and mystery-revealing photos. Audio and video presentations will teach how to keep that cover along the way.

Browse the many themed rooms, enjoy interactive activities and hear real stories about past spy missions. For example, in the School for Spies, examine a number of spy gadgets, weapons, bugs, cameras, vehicles, and technologies. Then learn the stories behind the spycraft and self-test skills of observation, analysis, surveillance and disguise at the interactive stations.

In the Secret History of History, uncover the stories behind the famous men and women who were considered above suspicion—and doubly effective as spies, like George Washington and Joseph Stalin.

I Spy a Spy?
, Mar 2020
My 20 year old son and myself loved it. My husband was not a fan. He thought it was going to be more interactive, with spy’s amongst us. You could spend all day reading and still not see everything. Very informative.
Great and speedy entrance

It was so interesting and fun for all of us. From 10 to 67 years old. I would highly recommend the Spy Museum. It far exceeded our high expectations.

Wonderful. I spent 3 hour there and need to return. Could not see everything in just 3 hours. World needs to team up together to catch Mafia and drug cartels to start stopping crime and evil.

If you like spy movies, novels and are into historical facts, this is the place for you. It is much less about TV and movie spies and much more about real life espionage from the time of Queen Elizabeth I (maybe before) to the present. You will also be assigned a mission. Have fun. I know I did.

Very good place for your kids and maybe you to spend 2-3 hours. Lot of interactive exhibitions and interesting materials. The only negative is cost - adult with 2 kids under 12 is 49 from Viator and 55 at the door.
