We all know the famous Spy Museum is in downtown D.C. But now comes word that Loudoun County is likely going to get its very own museum dedicated to the covert operations that have protected our nation. It’s called the National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations and it will be built on a parcel of land near Route 7 and State Road 28.
Loudoun’s Kincora development is shaping up to a cultural center. Today, plans were formally announced for the construction of a museum dedicated to telling the story of the nation’s intelligence agencies and special operations forces.
The National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations will be built just blocks away from the planning Children’s Science Center that also is planned in Kincora.
The Office of Strategic Services Society has selected the Kincora development for the National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations.
The 56,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to open in 2020, will occupy eight acres of the 424-acre mixed-use development west of Route 28 and south of Route 7. The museum will aim to “educate the American public about the fascinating history of American intelligence and special operations and their critical role in preserving freedom.”
“A Loudoun County site has been selected for a museum that publicly recognizes the efforts of American heroes who served in the shadows.
The National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations is planned as part of the Kincora property, a 434-acre, mixed-used development planned along Pacific Boulevard near the intersection of Routes 7 and 28.”

DULLES (March 18, 2016) – In Gaelic, “Céad Míle Fáilte” translates to One Hundred Thousand Welcomes. At the new, mixed-use community of Kincora, it’s how we say hello.
Inspired by the king who first united all of Ireland, Kincora aims to unite residences, businesses, retailers, technology, nature, education, hospitality and many other components to create an exciting 6.7-million-square-foot lifestyle center like nothing else in Loudoun County, VA. The newly launched website, Kincora.com, provides glimpses of the community’s vision of what living, working and shopping there will ultimately look like.
Amongst the mature trees, diverse wildlife and dozens of trails that wind past Broad Run River—over 165 acres of preserved, natural beauty—Kincora’s master plan provides for millions of square feet to be used as Class A office and retail space, three hotels, a dedicated cultural and science center, and 1,000+ luxury apartments and condominium homes. It will be the kind of place where everyone will have “their” spot – something special from Kincora that’s uniquely theirs. The kind of place you may leave, but one that never leaves you.
“Kincora will be a place that uniquely integrates one’s relationship to nature, culture and the community,” says Chris Kelly, Kincora’s Director of Marketing. “It’s so serene here, with the trees and the river. And businesses will find exceptional office space right on nature’s doorstep. That’s a rare thing for Loudoun County.”
At Kincora, respect for the onsite wildlife is a key component of what makes this location so special. Kincora is committed to protecting and conserving a wonderful Great Blue Heron rookery —one of the largest on the East Coast—that has been flourishing on the site for years.
Located along the commerce and knowledge corridor, near the intersection of Routes 28 and 7, Kincora boasts a premier, transit-friendly site ideal for national and international Fortune 500 companies as well as local and regional businesses such as restaurants, hospitality establishments and retail companies. The modern office suites will provide a refreshing change from views of concrete parking lots and pavement, offering striking vistas of forest, lake and wildlife instead. Northern Virginia’s thriving Children’s Science Center, a non-profit interactive museum, was quick to see the advantages of the community and the Center was thrilled when Kincora donated a parcel of land to provide the museum with its next home. Kids and their parents can enjoy the Children’s Science Center Lab today at Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, VA.
“Kincora is a one-of-a-kind place,” says Kelly. “It will be a real community where everyone feels like they belong. And everyone will find a favorite spot, whether it’s a log along the Broad Run River, a stool at the friendly local pub or a chair at the neighborhood coffee shop to start your day. I am convinced the beauty of the natural setting combined with the unique business location, local shops, nearby restaurants and recreational opportunities available on and around the river will make Kincora among the most sought-after mixed-use communities in all of northern Virginia, if not the entire mid-Atlantic.”
