"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

You'll encounter the gadgets that allow anyone to 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

You'll encounter the actual devices hackers have used to break into government and corporate systems. You'll explore how today's independent and state-sponsored hacking groups are trying to change our political landscapes for good and evil.

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

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

Special Ops

In the Special Ops Zone you'll meet the original “Q”, who inspired the James Bond character, and see some of his ingenious spy gadgets. You'll also meet the incredibly brave women who parachuted behind enemy lines to put these devices to the test.

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


In the Intelligence Zone you'll meet the Russian "spy who saved the world” and the movie-star handsome Russian submarine Captain who refused to fire his Nuclear missiles at the USA. These brave men gave President Kennedy time to negotiate a diplomatic solution to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and avert World War III. You'll encounter a spy camera from the U2 spy plane, and the first pressurised flight-suit, alongside miniature cameras and intelligence gathering equipment from both sides of the Cold War. You'll explore the motivations of spies and the massive difference that good intelligence can make.
