About the museum: Inside, is an array of items used in spying through history, a piece of the Berlin Wall, displays about famous and not so famous spies from all countries, military and women spies... and some clues about spying in the 21st century. A small area is devoted to pop culture spies from television and film. It's an attractive display of tools with some interactive areas. Some things to note about the museum: you are not allowed food, drinks, even chewing gum...you are not allowed to take ANY photos inside the museum (or video/recordings) and you are watched! That's why I have no photos here. It's a large museum which will take at least 2 hours to go through at a moderate pace. There is a cafe attached to the museum that is part of it, but you enter from outside, either before or after your visit. Strollers are not allowed. This is not a federally funded museum, so there is an admission price. There is a large gift shop, but expensive...so bring lots of cash. 2005 Admission Rates: Groups of 20 or more qualify for Group Admission and require Advance Reservations. Last Admission: 2 Hours Before Closing Adult (ages 12-64) $14, College Students (with valid ID) $13, Seniors (65+), Active Duty Military & Intel Community $13, Child* (ages 5-11) $11, Children age 4 and under FREE The Museum is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. On occasion, the Museum closes for private events earlier than regular visiting hours. Location: 800 F Street, NW Washington, DC 20004 (near Ford's Theatre and the FBI Building.
