Oh yeah, it was pretty good. It was cool to see all those little gadgets and how they were used to gather some serious intel...

For me, it was eye-opening to see the extent to which the Russians and Americans would spy on each other...like putting bugging devices in toilets...

Its worth it. One of the more enjoyable things for the younger and older crowd. I liked it a lot more then walking around looking at stuffed animals.

Definitely a must see in DC. You also get a good look at how we cracked ENIGMA against the Germans in WWII.

Obviously, this was NOT a real spy museum if you were able to find it so easily. Also, you wouldn't be alive to talk about it.

Zaytinya
Brasseire Beck (need to reserve a few days in advance)
Tabaq (did go to this one )

Umm, Spy museum, or NSA Museum? Hit the Cypto museum at the NSA at Ft. Mead, MD. I spent a good bit of time out there, allegedly.

A BMW is Just a Car, it doesn't make you smart, handsome, cool, or wealthy. Get over it.

Ehhhh... it was ok. If you're not in the military or government, then go, but I think the entrance fee would be better spent buying a book such as A Century of Spies.
