Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly

$39/adults,  $32/ages 6- 14 & students, free/ages 5 & under

Learn a variety of spy skills in an interactive museum and experience for all ages. Test code-making and code-breaking skills in digital Encryption Challenge, lying and lie-detection skills in a Deception Challenge, observation skills in 360° degree Surveillance Challenge and  strategy and agility in a cool laser tunnel Special Ops Challenge. Scores are recorded in an online spy profile, resulting in an assignment to a spy role like Hacker or Special Ops.

Also explore the history of spying with artifacts like Edward Snowden’s telepresence robot, a U2 spy plane camera and flight suit, micro bugging devices and lots more.  Learn about the FBI Double Agent who sold secrets to the Russians for 22 years, and the young Spycatcher who brought him down. Encounter an original Enigma from WWII and tap out messages on a replica. Explore the fascinating world of hacking (including a deceptively cute rainbow kitty). Several rooms are dedicated to James Bond with close looks at gadgets and filming secrets.

All ages are welcome and there is lots to touch and explore, though younger kids won’t understand much of it. Lots of sanitizing going on throughout the museum, space for social distancing and new disposable touch pens make it a safer indoor option for blasting away winter blahs.
