Do I need to know about spies to enjoy myself?
Not at all. The International Spy Museum provides a helpful overview when you arrive, including a briefing film which is combined with a tour of the School for Spies. You'll be introduced to the techniques and tools of the espionage trade through displays featuring surveillance and threat analysis.
Is this a good museum for kids?
It most definitely is. All ages of children are welcome but those 10 years and older will really appreciate what the International Spy Museum has to offer. To get them ready for their adventure, hands-on activities are listed on the Spy Guide, which you can access online at http://www.spymuseum.org/.
