101 Places to See Before You're 12 - An Unusual Museum

Our second Place from the book above is an Unusual Museum.  We visited one listed in the book back in October 2008 - The Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. 

Now I've heard mixed reviews on the Spy Museum, but we really liked it. 

The boys had fun going through the ducts trying to be stealth so that the alarms wouldn't go off.  The halls wound around and there was a ton of stuff to look at.  I really had fun.

I probably enjoyed it because our dear friends Dan and Lisa joined us for the afternoon!

We didn't take a single picture in the museum (I think cameras were verboten).  But here are some photos from Google Images.  We do have a decoder ring and FBI t-shirt as proof we were there :)

From the book:
#61 - An Unusual Museum
There are certain things that come to mind when one thinks of a museum.  Art?  Definitely.  Historical objects?  Perhaps.  Garbage?  Probably not.  And yet, there is a garbage museum, and it happens to be just for kids.  There's also a museum devoted to the pets of American presidents.  If you're into intrigue, there's a Cold War museum, a spy museum, and a cryptological museum.  If you're into small, burrowing animals (and who isn't?), there's a gopher museum.  Aluminum Christmas trees, shells, angels -- the list goes on and on.  Even if you don't consider yourself the museum type, get yourself to an unusual museum for a very unusual experience.
