The International Spy Museum is a privately owned museum dedicated to the tradecraft, history and contemporary role of espionage. More than 750 artifacts are on public display within 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, supported with historic photographs, interactive displays, film, and video. The permanent collection traces the complete history of espionage, from the Greek and Roman empires, the British Empire, the American Revolutionary War, the American Civil War, both World Wars, the Cold War, and through present day espionage activity. Operation Spy is an interactive exhibit where visitors assume the roles of covert agents and participate in a one-hour Hollywood-style spy simulation. This exhibition has a separate admission fee and separate entrance from the museum's permanent exhibit.
