How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The museum is very engaging and well-constructed. While there is a fair amount of reading involved, they do a good job of presenting material in a way that is accessible to a broad demographic (our group included kids in primary school all the way up to a tenured professor who teaches on espionage). The permanent collection has many interactive elements and the periodic film/video stops were well chosen and informative. A lot of thought and cost has obviously gone into the presentation, creating many appealing and visually detailed environments (a 1940s movie theatre, East Berlin, underground tunnels, colonial-era rooms). It's worth going early, as it can get very crowded in the afternoon during tourist season(s).

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
With our group of 6, parking at a nearby garage for $10/Saturday was cheaper than Metro tickets
