The International Spy Museum in Washington, DC is offering online events during its current closure. Will you choose to accept a mission?
This week’s fun includes:
May 4 @5:30pm
Star Wars vs Spy Wars: We can’t sit out for May the Fourth (Be With You). Hear SPY historian/curator Dr. Vince Houghton’s take on why Star Wars is more of a spy series than the Bond movies (his top fictional spy ever? Not James Bond but Princess Leia)!
Wed May 6 @1pm
Mind Games: Intelligence Analysis: A workshop for kids in middle and high school that tackles intelligence analysis – finding patterns, sniffing out deceptions, and remembering to leave your biases at the door
Wed May 6 @5:30pm
SPY Trivia: Test your spy knowledge – there’s some stiff competition out there…can you beat them all?
Thurs May 7 @5:30pm
Spies & Spymasters Virtual Happy Hour: This week’s focus is on Queen Elizabeth I’s spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham. SPY’s Curator of Special Exhibits will be joined direct from England by a very special guest: the actress who portrays Queen Elizabeth I in the Spy Museum’s exhibition who will share some of her thoughts on the burdens of wearing the crown. We will also be partnering with Stoney’s to make a special featured cocktail.
Fri May 8 @12:00pm
Spy Skills: Tradecraft Try-Its: A workshop for grades 3-6 to discuss espionage tradecraft and uncover secret messages
Fri May 8 @5-6pm
The Covert Couch Challenge: Friday is the perfect night for a family game night adventure! Race against the clock to complete mini missions. Suggested for recruits age 7-12 and their handlers (adults) of course. *This is our only paid event and it is very affordable at $10 a household.
