We really had a great time. We didn't pass our identity check at the end! The designer of the building utilized so much space you don't think it will ever end. A lot of fun and would recommend it to everyone.

My husband and I found it fascinating. The museum suggests that it takes about two hours to take a self-guided tour. Well, we took three and a half hours to walk through everything, read all the great information, and only began to skip a bit when...continued

There is so much to see and do, it's almost too much. I spent nearly 3 hours there. There are lots of truly interactive displays, short films, and fun facts. Good souvenir shop too.

This is a very interesting museum, with lots of exhibits and items to read. I kept wanting to take photos of interesting spy gadgets, but alas, no photography allowed.

Lots of fun with a whole bunch of interesting facts. Plan at least 2hrs if you want to make the most of it.

I enjoyed the International Spy Museum very much. There is a lot to absorb, however, so give yourself plenty of time to go through it. The museum is full of espionage information, especially from the First and Second World Wars.

My friend and...continued

If you enjoy interactive learning experiences, you will thoroughly enjoy this museum!! My guest and I had a great time. It is deceptively expansive inside, expect to spend majority of your day in the museum if you look at all the exhibits and...continued

More comprehensive than I expected. A must for history buffs. Allow a good three hours to see everything. A lunch break at their cafe or nearby restaurants is a great way to refresh yourself for more information. There's a lot to absorb.

Unfortunately, this is just a museum. I thought it was an interactive spy game. I was asked to pick an identity and memorize the details. I really thought I was going to play spy and be sent on a mission in a museum. After you leave the 2nd...continued

I purchased those tickets for my friends, who were visiting DC. They liked the museum very much and would recommend it to anyone visiting DC with big heart!

We had a good time. The museum tends to bottle-neck at the interactive displays and is very crowded and we got there pretty early. There is a lot of reading and the kids (oldest 12, youngest 7) lost interest about half way though.

Great Museum. You will be flooded with information. You can easily spend an entire day reading, watching and participating.
A great experience not to be missed

At first it was neat but clearly not worth the admission fee even with the great discount from goldstar!

With so many free world-class museums in DC, we were leery about paying to see what we expected to be a gimmicky tourist trap. We could not have been more wrong! We enjoyed this immensely, way, way more than any of the Smithsonian museums. It...continued

Awesome museum!!! You first enter and need to pick who you want to be as an agent. You have to remember all the details of your mission and will be asked questions to see if you have been successful as a spy or if you have failed. They have all...continued

Awful! It was packed, there was a line to get in, a la Disneyland, and it was only marginally interesting. The only good thing was the Goldstar tickets put us at the head of the line to get tickets. Hated it.

Amazing. Be sure to eat first because you will want to experience everything and this will take some time.
