The International Spy Museum in Washington, DC is the only public 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 more than 200 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.
Also, in the interactive James Bond exhibit ‘Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains,’ meet Bond’s villains, uncover their schemes and explore their exotic lairs and weapons in this special exhibit commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Bond film franchise.
