There is more to Washington DC than monuments and government buildings: modern museums are popping up everywhere. One of the most unique is the International Spy Museum. The museum employs interactive exhibits to involve tour-goers with the evolution of espionage from its early beginnings to today. The exhibits explain the skills it takes to be a spy to the tools they use.

One of the exhibits in the spy museum sees guests learning to keep a cover so that their identity as a spy isn’t revealed. By memorizing details of their cover they are then tested on a touch screen to see if they can fool the “foreign checkpoint” and make it home with their true identity under wraps. Learn about the greatest spies of all time and see if you have what it takes to be a top international spy.
