Spy at Night

February 03, 2012

Intrigue, deception, daring escapes, delicious drinks…it’s your turn to live a spy’s life!


Washington, DC – The new and improved Spy at Night experience is now declassified at the International Spy Museum. On the second Friday of every month the Museum opens its doors for a special after-hours event from 6:00-11:00 pm. Spy at Night combines exclusive evening access to the permanent exhibit and immersive experience Operation Spy, expert tradecraft demonstrations, spy skill challenges, espionage-themed music, and a full bar! Guests will immerse themselves in their own perfect mix of espionage activities; whether they choose to take on the role of a US intelligence officer on an international mission in Operation Spy or sharpen their spy skills with trivia and secret message deciphering contests or simply enjoy the permanent exhibit as a casual gallery-goer, the Museum’s numerous activities provide a lively mix of tradecraft and entertainment. No matter what adventure guests choose, at mission’s end, it’s bottoms up for everyone, a chance to debrief with fellow agents over a drink (shaken, not stirred, perhaps?) All Spy at Night tickets include a signature beverage and the chance to win additional prizes.


Each month will offer a different theme with a corresponding tradecraft demonstration: you might learn Ninja moves, run surveillance, or even meet a real spy. The Museum café will offer savory snacks for hungry operatives and the Museum store will be open for demos and specials so that everyone can leave with must-have spy gadgets.


February 10 will be Bond Night at Spy at Night! Guests can opt to participate in a 007-themed scavenger hunt through the galleries, try their hand at Bond trivia, or separate fact from fiction as they mingle with two real former intelligence agents! Former CIA intelligence officer Melissa Mahle and former CIA operations officer Peter Earnest, will offer insider peeks into the shadow world of spying. Guests who choose to come as their favorite Bond character will receive an extra 15% discount at the SPY Retail Store. Spy at Night is a great way to experience all the Museum has to offer. Starting 10 February 2012, come to the International Spy Museum for a special taste of the spy life!
