10/10  The International Spy Museum

The International Spy Museum is probably one of the most interactive museums that D.C has to offer. This museum is brimming with spy stories, games, and fun tests that the kids will love! While exploring the exhibits, listen in on the stories from real spies and learn some of the lingo. On 12 May 2019, the museum will open its new, permanent home in Southwest Washington D.C. On launch day, 12 May, the museum is hosting a family festival that will happen outside the building in the late morning. The festival will feature a performance from the National Symphony Orchestra Youth Fellowship Program and Peter Wood’s magic tricks. This event is free, and attendees do not need museum tickets to participate in the fun. Although this is one of the few museums in the city that charges an entrance fee, it’s an exciting and unique experience that will be a highlight of your Washington trip.
