Our trip to the east coast had been planned for months before the federal government shutdown, including our apartment in DC and flights out of the city...so we went, despite the fact that everything we were bringing our son to DC to visit would be closed. Of course, we found ourselves in the spy museum. Tickets were not inexpensive, but I had scored a deal on groupon so keep your eyes open. This museum turned out to be such a pleasant surprise. My 9 year old son, my husband AND my father couldn't get enough of it and probably could have spent all day in the James Bond exhibit alone, but in truth they did a great job, there were plenty of learning opportunities regarding the LONG history of international espionage which I found fascinating. The museum did a great job in developing interactive features throughout that kept the learning feeling more like a fun experience for my son that a history lesson. I would go again on our next trip to DC, though with everything else open will probably spend less time there as I believe our visit lasted about 7 hours.
