International Spy Museum

Through interactive exhibits with state-of-the-art audiovisual effects, film, and hands-on components, the International Spy Museum traces the evolution of espionage through the people who practiced the profession and provides a context for students to interpret the role intelligence plays in current events. Visiting classes can take their visit to the next level with a hands-on workshop that meets National Curriculum and Common Core Standards. From Operation Code Cracker to The Spy’s Eye View, each workshop encourages active learning and includes a pre-visit packet and classroom resources. Free classroom lessons, resources, and activities that support traditional curriculum are also available.
