Great fun going through the decades of spy gadgets...definitely more for older kids and adults as there is a lot of reading...but fun!

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

Half the museum is bond movie clips and 80% of clientel is crazy kids. I'd pass on this. Not 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) liked the videos and duct crawl-thru, but were less enthused by the poster-type...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.

I took my 11 year old son who is an aspiring history buff. After 2 hours of being there; I literally had to drag him out. So much information about spies in the different eras spanning from 1000 BC. Left him wondering how he could become a spy....continued

I took my brother since he is a fan of spy and intrigue. He was visiting from out of town and it was something different to do ... I'd been once before and but he had never been. We both liked the WWII exhibits and the welcome that we received...continued

I was with three boys, ages 11 to 17. The Spy Museum kept all three equally engaged. Bravo!

I've lived in DC for over 3 years now and it was my first visit to the International Spy Museum and I would highly recommend others visiting the museum. The museum was very well organized and very entertaining.

If you are interested in spycraft (or have kids), you/they will enjoy this museum. The museum covers a lot of ground...if you watch the many video clips and try the interactive exhibits it will take 3 hrs to get through it all. I went on a Fri...continued

It was a bit overwhelming with too much. I grew really tired and just wanted to rush through the end. There were some great gadgets from mini cameras to tiny guns. Interesting exhibit on James Bond films, but I was too tired by that point to fully...continued

It was a nice experience, very educational and a lot of information to take in and in the more interactive areas the crowd gets cumbersome but then it thins back out. Some of the interactive stations had machines off line but it did not detract...continued
