    What to Expect
    Visit: KGB Espionage Museum, 245 W 14th St, New York City, NY 10011-7129

    Only one public museum in the world, the KGB Spy Museum, is focused uniquely on the espionage operations carried out by the KGB. As a visitor to our museum, you will gain a wide understanding of the secret activities and methods of an organisation that has had, and continues to have, such a far-reaching influence on world affairs. The museum exhibition, much of which is only now being made public, presents a never-before-seen collection of items covering the activities of prominent KGB agents and revealing the strategies and methods that underlay many of history’s top secret espionage operations.

    This is a wonderful museum. I was really impressed with the number of interesting artifacts they had from the KGB (and from the FSB--the museum covers Russian "spy history" up until 2015!). Our tour guide, Sergio, was also great! He made the experience interactive and fun.
