The Experience: you'll test your pattern-recognition and analytical skills as you try your hand at making and breaking codes in a dramatic interactive adventure.

The Museum: you'll meet the Cryptologists who shortened WWII by cracking the German Enigma machine. You'll find original Enigmas and tap out messages on a perfect replica. You'll explore real code books and code-breaking devices, and discover how encryption affects you today.

“Wonderfully creative, interactive, and stimulating”
General David Petraeus (US Army, Ret.) Former Director of the CIA


The Experience: you'll test your empathy in an immersive lie-detection and lying simulation in high-tech zones using facial recognition and pulse-recognition!

The Museum: you'll meet the FBI Agent who sold secrets to the Russians for 22 years, and the man who caught him! You'll encounter cunning devices the CIA used to deceive foreign governments. You'll explore high-tech lie-detection machines, and see how deception surrounds us today.

"In a timely way, SPYSCAPE shows us what we know, but choose to ignore: that espionage and spying are not only the stuff of extraordinary tales or specialists’ tools. All 10-year-olds are spymasters now. “
- The New York Times


The Experience: you'll test your perception and observation skills in a real-time surveillance exercise powered by voice-recognition AI.

The Museum: you'll meet the female journalists who used their spy superpowers to free 2,000 slaves. You'll find gadgets that let anyone run a personal surveillance mission. You'll explore how governments and corporations use data surveillance on all of us, and what that might cost you!

"A modern twist on introducing people to the world of espionage. From governments’ mass collection of their citizen’s mobile data, to social media companies sharing details about their billions of users, to advertisers tracking us with cookies."
- Forbes


The Experience: you'll question your core principles and beliefs in an immersive chamber of activist hacking icons.

The Museum: you'll meet the teenager who broke into the CIA, and come face to face with the signatures behind Anonymous. You'll find the devices hackers use to break into corporations. You'll see how todays hacking groups are trying to change our political landscapes for good and evil.

“Visitors can hear real-life spy stories from the Enigma code-breakers to the teenager who hacked the CIA’s website.”
Lonely Planet


The Experience: you'll get up close to the actual Stuxnet virus that the US and Israel used to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program.

The Museum: you'll explore the dark side of the Internet: phishing, DDoS attacks and backdoor vulnerabilities, and the role they play in contemporary cyber operations.

“The future of museum experiences... espionage in a total design environment... one of the most thoroughly designed experiences I have encountered”

Special Ops

The Experience: you'll test your agility and speed in high-tech laser tunnels - and see if you can beat your friends!

The Museum: you'll meet the original “Q”, who inspired the James Bond character, and see some of his ingenious gadgets - and meet the brave women who parachuted behind enemy lines to put his devices to the test. You'll encounter exploding rats, pen daggers, flashlight grenades, suitcase radios and folding motorcycles, that fuelled the imagination of storytellers for decades.

“One of the hottest new attractions in New York. Participants will build skills in critical thinking, leadership, creativity, and agility (during the laser-dodging portion, that is!).”
City Guide


The Experience: you'll explore the motivations of spies and the massive difference that good intelligence can make.

The Museum: you'll meet the "spy who saved the world” and the movie-star handsome Russian submarine Captain who refused to fire Nuclear missiles at the USA. You'll find a spy camera from the U2 spy plane, and the first pressurised flight-suit, alongside miniature cameras and equipment from both sides of the Cold War.

“You won't just be learning about the in's and out's of the spy world—you can explore how the traits you have could make you a spymaster.”
