Travel back through the centuries and uncover tales of famous men and women who unexpectedly doubled as undercover agents, such as Josephine Baker and Julia Child!

Through 2014, you can immerse yourself in the museum’s latest addition, ‘Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains,’ commemorating 50 years of James Bond films. On display, see exclusive vehicles, props and costumes on loan from the original production company, many of which are on public display for the first time!
Wind through the maze of interactive exhibits such as ‘Spy vs. Spy,’ where outside visitors can lay traps to thwart the ‘spies’ within. Decode the riddles, test your bravery in a shark tank, or hold on for dear life at the ‘Hangtime’ display. You’ll also hear recounts of real spies that have had their share of real-life 'Bond moments'!
It's not all about Bond, though -- you can also learn about the hero's enemies.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Fun museum with lots of interesting exhibits.

  • We got there about an hour and half before closing. Definitely need more time to see it right. at least a couple of hours. Very cool stuff

  • My husband and I took our boys, ages 10 and 7, to see this attraction, and I would rate it as fine, but it was not spectacular. We went on a Saturday -- our only opportunity during our trip, so another day might have been better -- and it was very crowded. One good thing about Viator: I had printed off the tickets but forgotten them in the hotel room, but the museum was able to redeem them via my phone AND we were able to skip that line. When we entered the museum, after getting the tix, there was a long line to the one elevator that takes you to the first stop in the tour. We waited approximately 25 minutes in that line. The first two stops were somewhat interesting and somewhat guided, and you got the sense that the rest of the tour would be similarly guided, but not so. What followed was a series of rooms where we constantly had to make sure we didn't lose our kids full of spy stuff. The kids enjoyed it somewhat, but overall the visit turned out to be too much at one time and yet not enough. I don't mean to sound negative, because it was interesting, but I would recommend visiting the museum at a nonbusy time when you have time to really look at the items without the masses of people around.

  • An amazing place for kids over 7years as well as adults. The history of espionage is well captured and displayed. the section devoted to James Bond and its exhibits are a treat to all Bond fans

  • I wish I had purchased this tour directly at the museum instead of through Viator. When I purchased the tickets I was not aware that there were additional options that could be purchased for Spy Experiences - and I had in fact only purchased the general admission tickets. So when we arrived at the spy museum at 11 am we found out about these additional activities that my kids REALLY wanted to do and we were told we would need to purchase these Spy Experiences separately which was more money than buying the combo ticket directly from the International Spy Museum would have been and also we would have needed to pre-book a time slot and the only times available were for much later in the day when we had other activities planned. So while my kids thought the museum was ok, they really wanted to have the Spy Experience that we were unable do when we wanted because we had not booked in advance with the right activities. It would have been really nice if Viator had advised us of these facts.

  • Took my grandkids to Washington DC for graduation present. We really loved it there. We discovered we can never be a spy.

  • We brought a 13 year old and a 9 year old. They had a blast. They were running ahead to check out all the displays. There's interactive stuff too that was fun for them. It wasn't too crowded so we could take out time. And the gift shop is GREAT!

  • Had a wonderful time. Friends from California had not been to either museum before and their 16 year old daughter loved it all.

  • Very interesting content in this museum. Some activities are nonsense, to get the families in, but you are not required to participate. Well worth a visit.
