Last year we visited the SPY Exhibit at Discovery Times Square, which was the next best thing to visiting the Spy Museum in Washington DC.
This year, we took the 5-hour trip from NYC to DC. One of the stops on our itinerary was the International Spy Museum.
At the ISM, immerse yourself in the mission of an undercover agent. While there, you can assume the identity of a Spy with all the risks involved in a life of secrets. And if you thought Hollywood was the only place to come up with some amazing spy gear, guess again! The museum has an exhibit dedicated to real spy gadgets and gizmos that will blow your mind.
Spies weren't just a thing from the Cold War era. They're still very active and at the museum you can explore the world of espionage and the invisible profession that has shaped history and continues to have an impact on global events. If you are limber enough, even crawl through a vent in the wall to reveal how these men and women lurking in the shadows remain hidden from us all to achieve the goals of some government agency.
Notably, Exquisitely Evil is a special Bond exhibition and will be housed at the museum until 2014, a must-see for all James Bond fans. You can see special scenes from the last 50 years of Bond Villains and compare actions that happened in the movies with events that occurred in real life situations.
The ISM is recommended for ages 12 and older.
