#SPYArtifact of the Day: A-12 Full Pressure Suit, CIA, 1960s. Flying high helped keep spy planes out of missile range, but also out of breathing range. How do you keep a pilot soaring and alive? The purpose of this A-12 pressure suit (courtesy of the CIA Museum) was to provide a livable pressure atmosphere for the human body when the cockpit or out of cockpit atmosphere was too dangerous to the suit wearer. Without it, a pilot could die in 15 seconds. See this remarkable suit on display in the Spy Museum’s “Looking, Listening, Sensing” gallery. . . . . . . . . #spymuseum #a12 #flight #flightsuit #internationalspymuseum #cia #spy #spies #museum #artifact #history

Happy 7/11, agents! Did you know George Washington was known as Agent 711 in the Culper Spy Ring during the Revolutionary War? 📜 When America’s independence hung in the balance, George Washington charged Nathanial Sackett to set-up a spy network to provide intel on British troop movements. The Culper Spy Ring relied mostly on codes and ciphers to communicate secretly to the general. Their code book substituted numbers for words and names. George Washington’s codename was as Agent 711. 📜 —UPDATE: TICKET GIVEAWAY CLOSED— In honor of 7/11, we're partnering with our friends @mount_vernon to ✨GIVEAWAY✨ a pair of tickets to visit @spymuseum and experience the new GW gallery dedicated to America's first spymaster and the Culper Spy Ring. 📜 To win your tickets, be sure to follow @spymuseum and George Washington's @mount_vernon , and tag a friend in the comments below! A winner will be announced on July 12! . . . . . . . #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #newspymuseum #spies #spy #gw #georgewashington #gwmountvernon #culperspyring #culper #TURN #711 #history

Meet Agent Morten Storm. Rebellious youth. Biker gang member. Radical jihadist. CIA undercover agent. • Storm grew up in Denmark in a troubled home during the late 1970s. At age 13, he attempted his first armed robbery. At 16, he joined a Muslim gang. He converted to Islam and eventually became radicalized - and aspired to be a jihadist warrior. A change of heart led him to contact Danish intelligence, offering his assistance in the fight against the extremists including American-born Anwar al Awlaki, an al Qaeda leader, considered to be the most dangerous man in the world. • Storm's mission: to help CIA find Awlaki and bring him down. In this new gallery featured in the Museum’s “Spies and Spymasters” exhibit, guests get a chronological glimpse into the life of Morten Storm. Hear first-hand from Morten himself about his remarkable life and see the personal artifacts from Storm that factored into his mission as a double agent. . . . . . . . . . . . #spymuseum #internationalspymuseum #newspymuseum #mortenstorm #cia #spies #spy #museum #denmark #history

#SPYArtifact : Suitcase Radio c.1943. In constant danger of discovery by the Germans, OSS operative Virginia Hall used this suitcase radio to send intelligence reports in Morse code. It was no easy task. To generate electricity for the radio, it was attached to a bike frame connected to a car battery. Pedaling charged the battery, powering the radio. • Hall was able to radio intelligence reports, coordinated parachute drops of supplies. After the war, Hall become one of the CIA’s first female operations officers. . . . . . . . #spymuseum #internationalspymuseum #cia #spy #spies #museum #history #wwii #radio #oss #morsecode #virginiahall

#InternationalSpyMuseum obra de #RogersStirkHarbour y #HickokCole , (2015-2019) en #WashingtonDC es un edificio catalizador para la regeneración de la zona, rodeado de edificios de oficinas gubernamentales a gran escala. Inspirado en las técnicas de espionaje, el edificio "se esconde a plena vista". Formalmente es una "caja negra" plisada - una "caja de secretos" de paredes inclinadas translúcidas y opacas, articuladas por aletas de color rojo brillante visible desde el National Mall. #LEEDcertified #LEED Silver #richardrogers #steel #architecture #arquitectura #architecturelovers #archdaily #arquible #archilovers #traveling #architecturephotography #building #urban #cities #town #art #design #edificio #arte #ciudad #urbano #construccion #diseño #travel

Fourth of July was so tough this year without #BearGalvin. But I’m so appreciative of my wife and my friends for keeping me busy and making this an amazing weekend. Saw so many new things that, surprisingly, I never experienced before. Also, special thanks to @eberret for the VIP treatment and making our weekend completely unique and providing an opportunity that is truly once in a lifetime at the Capitol. #Marlins #Nationals #4thofjuly #America #USCapitol #chinatown #Arlington #UnknownSoldier #Watergate #Georgetown #DC #WashingtonDC #Lincoln #FordsTheatre #InternationalSpyMuseum #Memorials #NationalMall

⚠️Yellow is rapidly discovering that she must switch from ~flight~ ➡️ to ~fight~ in order to survive this mess. • I have a confession ••• 🤦🏼‍♀️My knowledge of espionage is heavily—er...completely based on movies and maybe few random things I learned at the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. 🕶This scene with the yacht in particular, felt very “James Bond” to me. ❓What’s your favorite action/espionage/crime movie?❓ • 💬If you don’t know what is happening in this story~ see the previous posts in the Yellow Mae short story (posted once every week)! • #writing #yellow #story #novel #espionage #internationalspymuseum #washingtondc #jamesbond #yacht #squeeze #silence #triump #sharp #fightorflight #questions #comments

We went undercover 🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♂️ and succeeded at our assigned missions 🔎! . We spent the afternoon @spymuseum in DC and had a blast! Upon arrival, you obtain your credentials, your undercover identity and your mission... should you choose to accept 😉! From there you learn all about the different spy tactics, famous spies, see actual tools used by spies, and test your skills and abilities all along the way while you work towards completing your assigned mission. . It’s super interactive and informative and is tons of fun for any age 😉🙌🏼! Check out Jon’s disguise (pic 4)... his identity scored a whopping 97% and impressed the kids around us 😂! . Pro Tip: Buy your tickets online ahead of time to save $2 per ticket. And you won’t have to wait in line once you get to the museum. . . #twotravelingfoodies #two_traveling_foodies #travel #travelgram #travelguide #mydccool #adventure #internationalspymuseum #visitwashingtondc #spymuseum #washingtondc #undercoverspy #instablogger #instatravel #intelligence #spytime #undercover #signusup #codeword #gummybear #lucky #afternoonfun #todoindc #goldeneye #007 #missionimpossible #espionage

《🕴》 check out my new ride and look! 😎 of course my favorite part about the spy museum was all of the disguise artifacts 🖤. there's also an "infinity room" with wall-to-wall reflections, where they talked about cyber attacks. the museum itself is very interactive, and super fascinating to learn through former spies. I actually really enjoyed listening to how real spies viewed movies and shows with/about spies lol probably better to go on an off day, not july 4th, so that you can go through all of the interactive consoles without waiting hahaha #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #latergram #infinityroom #facemasks #prosthetics #latergram

It's #WorldUFODay ! 👽 Between 1952 and 1969, the U.S. Air Force conducted a series of studies on UFO sightings called Project Blue Book. Thousands of reports were collected, analyzed & filed. However, the investigation concluded most were "misidentifications" of natural phenomena (clouds, stars) or aircraft. What do you think? Is the truth out there? . . . . . . . . #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #spyhistory #history #museum #spyfact #ufo #alien #aliens #xfiles #thetruthisoutthere

It's #NationalCameraDay ! For decades, spies have relied on concealed cameras to photograph people or papers quickly, quietly, reliably, easily…and secretly. Here's a look at some of our favorite cameras from the Museum's Clandestine Photography gallery. ➡️ • Buttonhole Camera, Pigeon Camera, Camera concealed in Thermos, Stasi Bra Camera, Tropel Camera concealed in key chain, KGB-F21 Camera (concealed in false button). . . . . . . . #internationalspymuseum #spymuseum #camera #spies #spy #espionage #history #museum #cameraday #photography #insta #mydccool #DC #photographer #photo #spystuff #conceal #hiddencamera #cia #kgb
