International Spy Museum

800 F Street, NW, Washington, Washington, 20004, DC

At the International Spy Museum, learn about over 200 spy gadgets including weapons, “bugs,” buttonhole cameras and invisible ink. Discover how Hollywood has helped develop disguise techniques for the CIA. And learn which pro-ballplayer and Oscar-winning director were spies among us. Kids love adopting a cover identity, testing their skills of observation and even climbing through ductwork to spy on fellow museumgoers. In the new hour-long “Operation Spy” program, kids ages 12 and up can decrypt a secret audio conversation, crack a safe, and conduct a polygraph test of a suspect agent in an intriguing adventure based on an actual case drawn from U.S. intelligence files.
