Spy Museum's 20th Birthday Celebration

A Live Event!

Rendezvous Info
Tuesday, July 19, 2022
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM ET

The year was 2002: Kelly Clarkson had just won the initial season of American Idol and the New England Patriots were trying on their Super Bowl rings for the first time in history. Plus, another first was on the scene: the International Spy Museum (SPY), the first-ever espionage museum had just opened its doors blocks from the National Mall in Washington, DC.

Join us on Tuesday, July 19 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. as we celebrate our 20th birthday with festivities outside of the Museum for the local community!

Enjoy music from the year of the Museum's birth (2002), Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, giveaways, top-secret activities from code-breaking to Mind Games for the whole family, a new 20th birthday scavenger hunt, and a partnership with the DC Public Library for its Summer Reading Day.

"For our birthday, we celebrate and recognize the dedication of our staff, volunteers, donors, visitors, and the DC community as well as the inspiring vision of SPY's founder, Milton Maltz. We can’t wait for what the next twenty years will bring." - Chris Costa, Executive Director of the International Spy Museum.
