    Maybe the rain forced everyone inside, but this was a super 3 hours for many folks. Adults and the kids were engrossed in the interactive portions of many of the exhibits. Leave plenty of time to play.

    International Spy Museum is a must see attraction in Washington DC, was what our Hop on Hop off tour guide told us. So we decided to visit even though it has general admission fee of 21.95 per person. when i tried to book on line, it showed fully booked for that day. I booked it through Viator helpline and got tickets for same day with discount for 19.5. Our overall experience of the exhibits and activities undertaken at Spy museum was nowhere close to satisfactory even. The reception asked to shom my voucher which i could not open since there was no WiFi there and my mobile did not have net connectivity, It is frustrating to see no wifi provided in today's times which is available in all other museums with free entry. initial briefing and conduct with the groups by the museum staff was extremely casual and we were sort of left to our own self guided tour. they asked us to assume some spy identity but thereafter nothing much happened except at the exit when they asked you some questions and based on the answers given you were either allowed to exit or asked to give up. one whole floor is devoted to James Bond, which is a waste of time, and neither entertaining nor educative. Food /drinks are not allowed to be taken with you and most visitors who carry foodstuff are not provided with any space inside where one can eat own food with dignity. we had to go out and eat on the pavement. when we asked what about the activities as spy tasks? they said you can undertake those by paying 15 each for those activities, and they have four such activities. They appeared neither interested in providing further information about the additional paid activities nor they seemed to care if we would take those or just leave. I keep feeling why are they charging 21.5 for this museum? in Washington dc there are so many world class museums which are free, and yet we did not have time to visit all of them. I regret i wasted my money and time visiting International Spy museum. I could have visited any other museum on National Mall and felt better. Final verdict: DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY BY VISITING INTERNATIONAL SPY MUSEUM.

    My husband and I took our boys, ages 10 and 7, to see this attraction, and I would rate it as fine, but it was not spectacular. We went on a Saturday -- our only opportunity during our trip, so another day might have been better -- and it was very crowded. One good thing about Viator: I had printed off the tickets but forgotten them in the hotel room, but the museum was able to redeem them via my phone AND we were able to skip that line. When we entered the museum, after getting the tix, there was a long line to the one elevator that takes you to the first stop in the tour. We waited approximately 25 minutes in that line. The first two stops were somewhat interesting and somewhat guided, and you got the sense that the rest of the tour would be similarly guided, but not so. What followed was a series of rooms where we constantly had to make sure we didn't lose our kids full of spy stuff. The kids enjoyed it somewhat, but overall the visit turned out to be too much at one time and yet not enough. I don't mean to sound negative, because it was interesting, but I would recommend visiting the museum at a nonbusy time when you have time to really look at the items without the masses of people around.
