Private Guided Tours

He was killed with what? She was caught how? A microphone in a cat…Really?  

Our Exhibitions & Programs Team is ready to brief you on these fantastic spy tales and more! 

Your private Museum experience led by staff from the International Spy Museum’s Exhibitions & Programs Team will feature spy stories about missions, gadgets, and agents, both on-and-off the exhibit wall. Guides will showcase the can’t-miss-stories, share behind-the-scenes scoops—where was the Trotsky axe for 20 years, anyway?, and stories that our favorite spies have told us that only we can reveal.

Guests will have a fast-paced and comprehensive overview of both the Museum’s magnificent building and our extraordinary collection, along with curated stories guaranteed to make your guests truly feel the thrill of being an insider in the world of intelligence. Plus a few other stealthy surprises along the way!

Our Exhibitions & Programs Team is happy to work with you directly after you book to discuss content, tone, and any other questions you may have. Let us help you experience the best the International Spy Museum has to offer!
