Intl. Spy Museum Tours Dupont Underground as New Location

The International Spy Museum needs a new location, and it may be thinking of going into more mysterious, underground places. One location that museum officials toured was Dupont Underground, the 75,000-square-foot subterranean space underneath the streets of Washington, D.C. There have not been any official statements on any decisions in the making, but that has not stopped media sources from making suggestions for new locations. Recently, Carnegie Library was in the running to be the new location for the International Spy Museum, but any plans to to expand the building were struck down due to it being a National Historic Landmark. Museum officials hope to be move-in ready for a new location by early- to mid- 2017 when its lease at 800 F Street, NW ends that same year.
