Exclusive: James Bond Takes Center Stage at the International Spy Museum’s Newest Exhibition

Washington, D.C. – The International Spy Museum, known for its permanent collection showcasing the history of spycraft, is embracing change with the debut of a space dedicated to rotating exhibitions. The first exhibition to grace this area will pay homage to the world’s most famous fictional spy, James Bond.

Titled “Bond in Motion,” the exhibition will feature 17 full-sized vehicles used in 13 Bond films, providing visitors with an up-close encounter with iconic vehicles such as the Neptune submarine from “For Your Eyes Only” and the Jaguar convertible with a mounted gun from “Die Another Day.” Among the highlights is a heavily damaged Aston Martin DBS from “Quantum of Solace” and a snowmobile featured in the chase scenes in “Die Another Day,” which visitors can even sit on for memorable photo opportunities. Interactive stations and screens showing clips from the 007 movies will provide a comprehensive experience for Bond enthusiasts. The exhibition is in collaboration with Eon Productions and the Ian Fleming Foundation.

Notably, the Spy Museum already boasts a significant Bond presence with the display of the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 from “Goldfinger” in its lobby. “Bond in Motion” will serve as a fitting extension of this homage to the cinematic secret agent.

Tickets for “Bond in Motion” will be priced at $12 and can be bundled with admission to the museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition is set to open on March 1 and is expected to run for at least a year.
