Spy Museum Temporarily Closed Beginning Dec 24

As a public health precaution in response to COVID-19 and in accordance with Mayor Bowser’s recent order, the Spy Museum will temporarily close to the public, beginning at 6 p.m. on December 23 through Thursday, January 21, 2021.

SPY has prioritized safety throughout the pandemic and maintained a safe experience for guests with reduced capacities, strict cleaning, enhanced safety protocols, and adherence to health guidelines. The health of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is a top priority.

We appreciate the Mayor's efforts to keep our community safe, and are committed to doing our part.

While the Museum's doors will be temporarily closed to visitors, our mission continues! We hope you'll spy on us virtually as we share the fascinating world of espionage through stories on our social media channels; our weekly podcast, SpyCast; educational resources; customizable virtual events offerings; and via a full slate of virtual programming in 2021.

The Spy Museum's Retail Store will continue to offer delivery for those shopping online, visit spymuseumstore.org.
