Cultural destinations often fall into one of two camps: totally for kids or not really at all for kids. We found a slew of museums that cater to everyone, offering programming that is sure to educate and entertain kids and parents alike. Start your exploration by flipping through this slideshow of the country’s best museums to bring the kids!

Walk (and Talk) Like a Spy – Washington, D.C.

We had to double down on D.C. spots because we had to accept this mission. The tools of the espionage trade are on display (some for the first time ever) and taking visitors at the International Spy Museum. Highlights include a Bond Car, Escape Boots, and cameras hidden in just about anything and everything. How fun would it be to give your little spies secret identities and go exploring?! That’s the premise behind the Museum’s interactive experiences and monthly “KidSpy” programs. The museum recommends their content for the 7 & up crowd. Secret agent intel: Lines tend to be long so families wanting to go should definitely arrive early (the museum opens every day at 10 a.m.). And talk like a spy too with their list of espionage lingo!
