Could you be a spy? Now’s your chance to find out!

The International Spy Museum's Spy Fest 2015 provides kids and parents a rare opportunity to get an inside glimpse into the secret world of espionage. Through interactive, spy-related activities and booths, attendees will learn how to think like real secret agents as they assume new identities, decipher coded messages, analyze hand-written and satellite images, and detect liars by polygraph -- all directly from experts in the field. And who knows, there just may be a spy or two in your midst…

Not-to-be-missed highlights include:

  • Disguise for Cover – Transform your appearances and assume a cover with help from professional, spy-caliber disguises and makeup artists.
  • Game of Drones – Meet local drone-makers and discover the art of surveillance from these “eyes in the sky.”
  • Questioned Documents – Learn how to analyze handwriting, signatures and find hidden marks on documents using evidence from real investigations with FBI forensic scientists.
  • Speaking in Code –Meet an FBI cryptoanalyst and try to crack her coded messages.
  • Spies and Lies  Can you beat the polygraph?
  • The Spy’s Eye View – Hear from former spy turned Spy Museum Executive Director Peter Earnest who offers an inside look into his life as an intelligence officer in the CIA’s Clandestine Service.
  • Ninjutsu demonstration – Martial artists roaming the Museum’s galleries might take you by surprise.  Explore the traditional martial arts form of Ninja also associated with espionage in Japan.
