From real-life spy gadgets to the stories behind the coolest secret agents in movies, the International Spy Museum is the first and only public museum in the United States dedicated solely to the world of espionage. Upon arrival, you'll be given a secret identity, which you'll use to test your spy skills throughout the experience. Then, you'll explore a series of themed rooms, where you'll hear historic tales, examine artifacts and participate in activities. Get ready for exhibits like Spies Among Us, which focuses on WWII-era German and Russian spy rings, and Exquisitely Evil, a tribute to the villains of cinema's most famous spy -- James Bond. Exquisitely Evil features more than 100 film artifacts from both old and new Bond movies, plus interactive exhibits that allow you to take over the controls of a villain's lair, brave the depths of a virtual shark tank, play spy vs. spy with other visitors, disarm a missile before time runs out and more.

A very good lecture by two mid-career architects building in places like Argentina, Shanghai, Italy and LA. They were informative, insightful, and very imaginative.
The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is that the lecture accompanied an exhibit at the museum. Unfortunately the lecture began after the gallery closed. Would have been nice to be reminded when purchasing the ticket to arrive earlier to see the exhibit.
