The USA is home to some of the wackiest places on earth and the International Spy Museum in Washington is certainly one of them. One thing is for certain, you will be exposed to the ultimate spy experience here. From secret identities and code words to guns and gadgets, the place is full of eccentric exhibits from the world of espionage.
There is a section on Bond villains that is a must-visit whether you are a fan of the popular franchise or not. It takes you through the diabolical ways of these evil personas. You can see over a 100 objects that belong to the sets of bond films too. If you are less of the see and more of the do types, try out one of their spy experiences where you actually get to be the spy and try your hand at being suave like the heroes of your favourite movies. It is certainly a fun and intriguing experience.

International Spy Museum Reviews & Ratings
This is a great outing! Everything was well done and extremely interesting. There are a great deal of interactive things throughout the museum as they give you a new identity and a key card to help you test your memory skills as you go through the museum. There is a great deal to read and see within the museum and if you want to read everything it will take you the best part of the day. They go from World War I through the modern age, with a few earlier historical events in the first large room. There are two main floors in the building that contain the museum and the ground floor was mainly the ticket office and the museum store full of interesting goodies! I would definitely make this a must stop on your trip to DC!
Great museum, and improved over the prior location. If you visited at the old location, and wonder if you should go again, the answer is absolutely YES! It is very well done. My only complaint when we were there mid-afternoon was it was a little too crowded. It has an awesome gift shop too. My teenage kids loved it too.
Brand new museum with new technology that makes the experience very entertaining. You can participate by assuming a spy identity and test your spy skills along the way, or just enjoy the exhibits. It is my favorite museum in DC. I have been there twice and still have not seen all the exhibits. This is not pretend spy movie stuff. It is actual history. Highly recommended!
The Spy Museum is so much fun! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Definitely allow 3-4 hrs to go through and watch all the short films throughout the different sections of the museum. Lots of street parking but could fill up quickly so allow a few extra minutes if driving.
Great museum. Story boards are well done. Very informative. Very interactive if you like that kind of thing. Still great even if you don't choose to interact. Was pretty crowded the Sunday we went. Tough to do the interactive parts when there are lots of kids. Mainly because these days many kids have no manners (yes, I'm talking to you, parents). Go when crowds are smaller. The Spy store was the best shop at a museum that I've visited. Overall experience was great.
