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.

Pretty cool place. Lots of neat spy stuff. It was cool to see the evolution of the technology used by actual operatives. Probably my favorite part was the Hall of Bond Villains. We also did the Spy in the City walking tour/secret spy mission. Great for kids and kids at heart. I would recommend.
This was so fun. Buy your tickets in advance and show up early. We were let in an hour early, which was nice. I loved the James Bond exhibit the most. So much cool stuff to see. Save your money for the gift shop! There's some great stuff in there you can't find anywhere else. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Amazing place to visit!! I had lots of fun here knowing about the cool stuff that spies all over the world have done! It was pretty interesting. :) The best part was the spy games. They were very compelling and entertaining! If you are in D.C add this place definitely to your to go places! Every penny worth.
I was so looking forward to finally seeing all this museum had to offer. However, due to the crowds and throngs if young kids running throughout, it was hard to stand at exhibits, read the materials and look without being bumped into, etc. From what I could see, it was great. I just wish we had been able to enjoy and appreciate it more, especially since we had paid to get in.
Parents and teenagers in our group loved the Spy Museum. We did the Operation Spy option before touring the museum. It was kind of like an escape room event but with several rooms and different options and some light running. Everyone enjoyed that. We had heard the Spy Museum was mostly James Bond but that was absolutely not the case. We spent 75% of our time in the museum in the non Bond areas. Operation Spy lasted about an hour and then we spent about 2 hours in the museum. Two of our group got done no problem but the other two of us would have liked another hour. If the idea of a Spy Museum is interesting to you, then the International Spy Museum is a must-see while you're in Washington DC.
