Don't bring the kids! It's really too sophisticated for anyone under 9 or 10. The young ones are grabbing and banging on exhibits while whining to their parents, "I'm... continued

Excellent exhibits. However, missed the charming cafe you used to have. Missed easily found places to sit down (other than the movies) and relax and have a bite to eat!

Extremely interesting if you've never seen it before. A bit boring if you're escourting visiting relatives or friends.

Focus seemed to be on the tools of the trade (of spying) with little intellectual weight behind it. Found myself bored within 15 minutes.

Get there as close to your entry time as possible when it is less crowded. This is a great place to take your time to visit. As the morning goes on hordes of rowdy kids... continued

Great museum, it took about 2-3 hours to go through. It was well worth the money.

Husband and I and our teenage grandson all enjoyed the museum.
Be prepared to spend several hours there.

I agree with the reviews about children under the age of 10, not enjoying it as much.

I did not attend this event but gave the tickets as a present to my nephew and his family who were visiting DC. Both parents and teenage children were very impressed with the Spy Museum and enjoyed their visit immensely. Congratulations!

I enjoyed the museum - went on a cold, snowy day when I was happy to while away the time on the exhibits and write-ups, and it was not crowded. My boys (ages 11 & 13)... continued

I passed the test and complete mission assigned. Maybe I missed my call and should have been a spy. The museum is great and will probably go back. I spent 3 hours there and There is a lot of information I will like to see in more detail.

I purchased these tickets to take my brother and his family while they visited over the holidays. Our visit was quite enjoyable. There were items that kept the interest of both young and mature people.
