The International Spy Museum welcomed its 5 millionth visitor over the Labor Day weekend. Loud cheers erupted and SPY balloons filled the lobby as the Stoner family from Owings Mills, MD was announced as the Museum’s 5 millionth visitors. The family received an annual SPY membership that provides them with unlimited, immediate entry into the Museum’s permanent exhibit as well as discounts in the SPY store, café, and programming.

This was not the first visit for the family. “Every time we have friends or family to visit the area we take them to the Spy Museum. This is our 4th visit!” stated Mr. Ron Stoner. “This time we have an exchange student with us from Spain.”

The Museum arrived at the 5 million mark after only seven years of operation, far exceeding initial projections of just 500,000 guests annually.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
