The International Spy Museum is the first and only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on this all-but-invisible profession. The museum opened in Washington DC’s Penn Quarter area in 2002, but will be moving to L’Efant Plaza, south of the National Mall, sometime in 2018. Finding parking in the heart of Washington D.C. can be an expensive and frustrating endeavor if you don’t plan ahead.
We’ve created this guide to help you find great parking deals near the museum so that you can focus on enjoying your time inside of the museum.
