Kincora has a secret to reveal
We are proud to tell you what it is: The National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations (NMISO) will construct its state-of-the-art facility at Kincora.
This iconic new addition to Kincora will celebrate the work of America’s intelligence and special operations communities. America’s first strategic intelligence agency was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), which was created in 1942 and helped win World War II. Since then, the CIA and other intelligence agencies have risen to every challenge in our fast-changing world. Secret heroes, from “French Chef” Julia Child to James Donovan from “Bridge of Spies,” deserve a museum that highlights their work protecting the nation.
This striking new landmark is designed to reflect the spearhead insignia of the OSS. The NMISO will include a 4,000-square-foot lobby, 19,000 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibition space, an education center and a 200-seat auditorium. Its interactive experience will teach you what it means to serve at the “tip of the spear”.
Can we tell you another secret? Bringing this exciting new museum to Kincora is part of our greater plan to make Kincora the most dynamic new destination in Loudoun County, a place where people will work, live, shop, dine and explore this exciting chapter in our nations’ history.
