Tuesday January 18, 2011 / All DayInternational Spy Museum: The Permanent Exhibit
How was your experience?
My husband and I took the advice of other reviewers and went on a day when we were pretty sure it wouldn't be crowded, since that seemed to be the main complaint. Great idea! mid-week, mid-winter, but we're retired and able to do that. I agree with the reviewers who complained about the crowds interfering with their enjoyment of the exhibits; it would be impossible even with moderate crowds, since you have to get up close to read everything. It's nothing like a traditional museum where you can view paintings and sculptures from a distance. We thought it was "OK", not great. At our age, we already knew a lot of what they had to convey; for the under-30 crowd it might be more informative. Also, you would like it more if you're into gadgetry, which I am not, but husband is - so he liked it better than I did.
