Back in September of 2013 we learned that the redevelopment project in Mt. Vernon Square would include “the relocation of SPY from its current location at 800 F Street, NW, to the historic Carnegie Library”. No longer the case. Washington Business Journal reports:

“The International Spy Museum and Events D.C. have scrapped plans to redevelop the historic Carnegie Library in downtown D.C. into a new home for the museum and a visitors center.”

They also note that The Spy Museum’s current lease at 9th and F St, NW ends in 2017 and the museum is now actively looking for a new space.
