October 14th, 2018
New event space at International Spy Museum
700 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington, DC 20024
International Spy Museum // opened in Washington, DC on July 19, 2002
It is the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession that has shaped history and continues to have a significant impact on world events.
The Spy Museum features the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. Many of these objects are being seen by the public for the first time. These artifacts illuminate the work of famous spies and pivotal espionage actions as well as help bring to life the strategies and techniques of the men and women behind some of the most secretive espionage missions in world history.
The mission of the Spy Museum is to educate the public about espionage and intelligence in an engaging way and to provide a context that fosters understanding of their important role in and impact on current and historic events. The Spy Museum focuses on human intelligence and reveals the role spies have played in world events throughout history. It is committed to the apolitical presentation of the history of espionage in order to provide visitors with impartial, accurate information.
At 140,000 square feet, the new Museum will provide more than double the floor space of the existing building, at 800 F Street NW, and will include new resources for educational programming, a lecture hall/theater, and multifunction event space with sweeping views of DC.
