Museum Monday: The International Spy Museum.
Happy Monday educational travelers!
Jeff is back to start the week off with an intriguing Washington, D.C. museum. Enjoy!
An educational trip to Washington, D.C. is fascinating, fun, and informative. It can also be full of intrigue, danger, and excitement if you include a visit to the International Spy Museum located at 800 F Street NW in downtown Washington. It opened in the summer of 2002, and remains the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage. It is also the only museum in the world to provide a global perspective on an all but unseen profession that has shaped our history and continues to have a major impact on world events. The museum features the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. Many have never been seen publicly before making it a perfect place to stop off at on an educational student tour. These artifacts illuminate the work of famous spies and pivotal espionage actions as well as help bring to life the strategies and techniques used by some of the greatest secret agents in world history.
Students on an educational tour to the International Spy Museum will uncover its mission which is to educate the public about espionage and intelligence all while in an engaging way. The museum also provides a context that fosters an understanding of its important role in and impact on current and historical events. The museum focuses on human intelligence and the role spies have played throughout history in an apolitical and unbiased manner. You will be amazed at the deceptions that helped keep the D-Day Invasion of Normandy a secret and how the greatest secret of all time, the Atom bomb, was lost to the Soviet Union. As an added bonus on your next student tour to Washington, D.C., the museum is offering an exhibit entitled “Exquisitely Evil- 50 years of James Bond’s Villains” at no additional charge.
Sounds pretty awesome right?!
