Spying is for professionals and is a secret job, so when you're shown tools and things only spies used in the Cold War than that place becomes a must-see fro everyone.

I was so excited to go to the International Spy Museum, because I've never seen spy tools in real life. You were 'overwhelmed' with 'secrecy' there like high-tech cameras, paneling, invisible ink and many many more interesting stuff.

Another advantage is that it is really close to the FBI. I wonder why? :)

I liked the post-war cafe and the KGB office resemblances. They were so realistic you could totally catch that mystery and secret feeling.Reply
