Very cool and interesting place but you have to wait way too long at each station one inside the exhibit. They way overbook and it detracts from the experience.More

Hi jtcdc, so sorry to hear you had a frustrating time, we do have peak moments where the museum is busier than other times so we designed the space for you to be able to walk around and find stations that are not to crowded,...More

I really loved this museum. There are two really unique things about it: 1) Interactive games: There are several activities stationed throughout the museum that teach you what it's like to be a spy. You can view interview footage and find out if the suspects...More

Someone spent a tremendous amount of money on this "museum." I would say it's more of an interactive history driven experience than a linear museum. We loved the elevator presentation and then proceeded to spend 2 hours trying to soak it all in. Our 12...More

We had a free afternoon before going to see Anastasia that evening so we decided to visit Spyscape (sort of close by...). The tickets at $40 aren't exactly a bargain, but one can easily spend two+ hours in the center, so it's not a disappointment....More
