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.

Calling ALL James Bond fans: My daughter chose this as part of her graduation present. We had such a fun time learning about the history of spying and just having fun! There is so much cool stuff to see.The gift shop was also on point and not overpriced! My daughter and her dad and I give this place 5 STARS! We really enjoyed ourselves!
Shaken not stirred? This intriguing museum of worldwide spy materials through the ages is ready to take your online reservations for entrance at the beginning of each hour. The venue includes lots of tactile activities and James Bond movie paraphernalia. A souvenir shop library contains many non-fiction and fiction volumes on the art of spying for national security, monetary, and personal preservation purposes.
Fun and interesting! About a quarter of the museum is James Bond stuff. I personally don't like James Bond enough to be awed and amazed by it but it wasn't enough to turn me off to the museum experience. There are sections including cyber terrorism, ninjas, spy rings in the civil war and cold war as well as the revolutionary war and even celebrities who were actual spies (I was certainly shocked)! There is a section where you can climb through an air duct like a spy. There are also packages you can get where you can go on a scavenger hunt through the city or solve spy puzzles throughout the museum with your very own code name Definitely wholesome fun for the whole family.
Absolutely amazing! We jumped into a guided tour that had just started. Very glad we did. Our guide, Phil was awesome. A former Air Force Pilot who flew some of the planes, he was very knowledgeable and interesting! Highly recommended!
A very interesting and unique experience of visiting a whole Museum dedicated to the Spy World. It is something that both kids and adults can enjoy. I would recommend buying the combo ticket so that you can do the one hour spy activity which is real fun and different experience. Remember to check the time for the Spy activity and be there atlest five minutes in advance. Buy tickets online and it'll save you the hassle of standing in the line. Museum itself can take anywhere from one to three hours depending upon how much you are interested in different objects. The objects are neatly arranged in different exhibits and give you a pretty neat idea about the secret world of spying. I would highly recommend this activity which is different
