A very interesting way to see how gadgets were used by various countries. This is definitely a very different museum than most and worth visiting.

Hello Agent Nas S, Thank you for your review! With over 1,000 artifacts on display we love to showcase the many gadgets used throughout history to assist spies in their activities. Some of our favorites are the many concealments spies have used to hide and transport covert communications. They range from shoes to hollowed out coins! We are glad you had a chance to visit us and hope you come back again soon. Kia Hunter Operations International Spy Museum 202.393.7798 guestdebriefing@spymuseum.org

The museum gives insight to the life of spies. The museum says to take around 2.5 hours to do and the length of time we took was more. not a bad thing. tons of stuff to do and they bring you in by letting you be a spy through the museum.

Hello Agent daniellefairy! Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We do recommend 2-3 hours to explore the permanent exhibit, but many of our guests spend the entire day with us. There is plenty to see and plenty to learn. We hope we were able to provide insight and delight! We hope to see you again soon!

Love that this museum is interactive but when there are too many people the interactive aspect is greatly diminished. It is hard to see everything with all the crowds to try and read the small excerpts about the collection of items they have. The computers for the Agent Mission

Dear Agent Biggimoto, Thank you for visiting the International Spy Museum and for your feedback. Since we recently reopened our new Museum, it has been a very popular place to visit. As a private nonprofit our mission is to educate agents of all ages about espionage history. With that said, we understand the interactives can be busy and are taking active measures to address this concern. In fact, we are increasing the number of computer screens and moving them to locations away from artifacts, so guests can still read about these amazing gadgets. We hope this improves the experience and allows all agents to engage with our content in any way they choose! Thanks again for spying on us!

Hello Agent C4985XEpaulom, Although we are glad you came to visit the Spy Museum, we are sorry to hear it did not live up to your expectations. You are correct in that there are two floors of permanent exhibit space, but many of our guests take the entire day to experience all we have to offer. In fact, we display over 1,000 historical artifacts, have over two dozen films, and guests can try over 50 physical and digital interactives, including Undercover Mission. The other floors of the museum house our offices, event spaces, educational classrooms, and room for a temporary exhibition (coming soon!). Since the International Spy Museum is a private nonprofit, we do not receive government funding to maintain our operations. Instead, admission sales like yours go into protecting our artifacts and providing educational resources for students and visitors. We appreciate your contribution to our educational mission and hope you come back again soon to fully experience all SPY has to offer.
