“Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains”, an exhibition of James Bond’s villains and their weapons which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the film series, is on display at the International Spy Museum in D.C. through January 1.
In partnership with EON Productions and Bond film producers, the museum is displaying over 100 artifacts from Bond films, including airships, underground lairs and nuclear weapons.
“The exhibit explores how the evildoers and their plots have changed to reflect their times and how James Bond has influenced the public’s perception of real espionage. Historical artifacts and documents as well as classic film and audio clips profiling Bond and his adversaries complement the movie props,” notes the event brief.
Visitors can also see specially made videos of intelligence professionals who talk about connections between the Bond films and real life events and espionage work. They also tell their personal “Bond Moment” from their experience in the field. In addition, some interactive games can be played at the museum including shark tank experience and diffusing of an atomic bomb.
In early 2019, the Spy Museum will be moving to a new location in L’Enfant Plaza. January 1 is the last day to see the Exquisitely Evil exhibition at the museum.
The tickets for the exhibition are priced at $20.95 or $22.95 (at the door).
