Does James Bond interest you? Want to see if you can break an encryted code? Ever think a camera that can take pictures through walls was impossible? The Museum I work for just opened for the first time yesterday, the International Spy Museum. It is the first Museum of its kind in the United States and the only one that sheds a global perspective on espionage. It has the largest collection of intelligence/counterintelligence artifacts on public display from an exact replica of the Aston Martin DB5 used in Goldfinger to a lipstick pistol used by the KGB in the Soviet Union. Located in Washington, DC (I know, quite a hike from say Sheffield) it is a hands on interactive museum that educates rather than promotes espionage and its effects on the world. For more info, visit our website. <International Spy Museum website (www.spymuseum.org) > and visit it if ever in Washington, DC.
