International Spy Museum

By DullesMoms, Oct 2023

Dedicated to the world of espionage, the International Spy Museum invites visitors to explore spying — past and present! Find this huge destination (almost three football fields big!) on L’Enfant Plaza in Washington, DC, just south of the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall.

The International Spy Museum houses the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. Thousands of items shed light on covert missions and clandestine operations from around the world. The museum not only showcases devices that have played crucial roles in historical events, but tells the stories of spies and their missions.

The museum is interactive, too! Through “Undercover Mission,” guests are invited to become a spy! After adopting a new persona in an overseas location, look for Undercover Mission stations in exhibits throughout the museum. After you’ve completed your mission’s tasks, you’ll discover if you succeeded, as well as your top two spy skills!

Visit online and discover the International Spy Museum’s permanent and limited-time exhibits and experiences. You can also explore their extensive collection by category and type.

Open daily, this destination is fee-based; save on admission with plan-ahead pricing.
