Spy's Eye View Speaker Series

What better way to delve into the world of espionage than to hear about it from those who have lived it? Get the inside story from true insiders including former members of the CIA, FBI, and KGB. Former intelligence officers reveal extraordinary experiences from their distinguished careers in the field and offer informed opinions on current and historical events. 

Speakers can offer formal speaking programs, VIP guided tours of the Museum, a “Dinner with a Spy” experience, or behind-the-scenes intel on artifacts in the exhibitions during Museum Exclusive Access. 

Looking for a unique Speaker to present at your conference location or to drop in to your next zoom meeting? Speakers can present off-site in DC or out of town. Fees will vary based on location.
