Prepare to spend at least 3.5 hours if there's a crowd going through with you to be able to enjoy it all.

It takes about two hours to get through the museum, and lots of reading. My 13 year old loved it, even with the amount of reading involved. Not really for kids much younger (unless they have a great attention span).

More for an older crowd. The explanation of espionage techniques seems to end in the 70's. Not much new after that time period for possibly obvious reasons - they are still in use?!

Better to go during the week. We went on a Saturday and it was quite crowded. Check prices for special programs. Can be expensive for a family. We were pleased with the coverage of "spying" and the layout. Allow plenty of time for your visit. Don't miss the George Washington letter. A prized possession.

Be prepared to be amazed. The SPY is fantastic. I will definately be returning when our family comes to town.

A lot of reading, but awesome for Bond fans. I would go again, especially for a special exhibit or event.

Visit on a Sunday. There is plenty of free street side parking within a 10 minute walk.

Plan enough time. There is a lot to see, and read. Kids need some guidance understanding some of it. Our kids are 8 and 10, they loved it!

From Our Editors

Considered to be the country's only public museum devoted to the history of global espionage, the International Spy Museum teems with multimedia displays, hands-on activities, and educational events. Filled with low-lit halls and mysterious doors, the museum backs up its exhibits with experience; many of its board members, staff, and speakers are former spies. Executive Director Peter Earnest, for one, spent more than 35 years in the CIA and its National Clandestine Service; frequent speaker Oleg Kalugin once held a position as major general of the KGB. Through special talks and an array of exhibits, the group reveals several hundred years of spy techniques and gadgetry, showcases connections between real spies and pop culture, and draws from international backgrounds to grant a global perspective.

In the Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains exhibit, visitors explore the most memorable villains from throughout the James Bond film series, discovering the role the series played in shaping public perception of spying and exploring how the villains changed to reflect their times. Featuring over 110 movie and historic artifacts, a series galleries allows visitors to learn about the wide variety of evildoers from many perspectives. For an additional charge, guests can opt to embark on a simulated covert mission entirely based on real intelligence case files in Operation Spy, a one-hour interactive exhibit during which participants ride in simulated truck beds and use video surveillance to find leaked nuclear-trigger technology in a fictional country.
