  • International Spy Museum
    Although its exhibits trace spycraft back to the Revolutionary War, the bulk of the Spy Museum's artifacts come from the golden age of espionage: the Cold War.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: The Smithsonian Institution facet_type_id: 92b68580-5ca4-1032-b7ee-2bad5b91f106 html_text: |- When British scientist and visionary James Smithson left his estate to the United States, he hoped that it would one day become “an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge.” Smithson got his wish, and then some. His generous gift transformed into The Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex. Since its founding in 1846, The Smithsonian has blossomed into exactly what Smithson envisioned: a place where knowledge is celebrated, advanced, and shared with new generations. Anchored on the National Mall, the Institution’s many branches explore the worlds of art, science, history, and culture, inviting guests to discover their origins and see what the future might have in store.
