So much fun! You'll truly understand the world of the spy
as you walk through this museum. Displays of both government
and civilian spy equipment. Play along with a spy role-playing
game as you walk through the museum. Be sure to watch
some of the informational videos as they provide some great insight;
and are interesting enough to keep most family members interested.
I would recommend this more for older children as the younger ones
do tend to get bored quickly and make it less enjoyable for the rest
of the family.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS- The museum is very interactive.
Even the informative videos are interesting enough for children.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS- This place is busy!
Expect a long line, especially during peak tourism times
