An exhibit based on the FX series "The Americans" opened Wednesday at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.

An exhibit on "The Americans," an FX series starring Keri Russell as a Soviet spy living in 1980s America, opened at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

From background on a band of real soviet agents discovered in the U.S. to some of the wigs worn by Russell and her co-star, Matthew Rhys, in the TV series, the exhibit explores the space between social reality and fictional spy narratives.


The museum is presenting "The Americans" exhibit through the end of May in conjunction with FX, as "The Americans" continues in its second season as one of cable TV's more popular series.
