    I recommend doing one of the spy simulations instead of just general admission, it makes it more interesting and interactive but overall we had a blast with our group!

    Learn the story behind Argo, separate James Bond fact from fiction, and practice your decoding skills. The gift shop is stocked with invisible ink, bionic ears, thrillers and peel-and-stick mustaches.

    More theme park, less museum. 20 bucks is a lot in a city where most museums are free. No mention of bay of pigs, Edward snowden, just boo Russians and nazis boo!

    Operation Spy, an interactive role play that lets you pretend to be an undercover agent, is one of the best museum experiences I've ever had. Well worth the extra money. I'd definitely do it again.

    Definitely do operation spy! It's not just some game for kids, but a well designed and thought out interactive game, even for adults. It puts you in a spy mindset. Requires actual thinking. Worth it.

    You can also go on live action adventures, or "missions," where you become the spy and can decode secret messages and interrogate suspects. This is one of the most interactive museums in town. Read more
