The International Spy Museum, a 501(c)(3) private non-profit, introduces more than 600,000 visitors each year to the shadowy world of espionage and intelligence. People travel across the US and the world to explore the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to the craft, practice, history, and contemporary role of espionage and the only one in the world to tackle the field of intelligence from a global perspective.
Our primary focus is on education. By showcasing the largest collection of espionage artifacts ever placed on public display and engaging visitors in one-of-a-kind, hands-on educational programming, we aim to illuminate the role intelligence has played throughout history and continues to play in today's world.
For more than 18 years, the International Spy Museum has been a magnet for visitors from around the world, offering an exciting and thought-provoking exploration of the shadowy world of espionage and intelligence for learners of all ages.
We are the only public museum in the United States dedicated to the craft, history, and contemporary role of espionage, and the only one in the world that presents this topic from a global perspective.
Our focus is education. Our programs reach thousands of students each year, engaging them in problem-solving and critical thinking inspired by the stories and craft of espionage and intelligence. Our Access to Spy programs further expand our reach, with resources, curriculum and other learning opportunities for audiences who, because of financial, physical or geographic obstacles, would not otherwise be able to benefit from them.
