EXPERIENCE

SPYSCAPE illuminates the shadowland of espionage

It’s a contemporary museum, featuring dramatic spy stories and gadgets. It’s an interactive experience, full of thrilling spy challenges. And it’s a personal journey, to explore your own spy skills and discover what kind of spy you’d be.

BRIEFING

Your immersive Briefing takes you into the world of spying — where corporations, hacking groups, and governments seek secret intelligence.

Encryption

Meet the Cryptologists who shortened WWII by hacking the Enigma cipher machine. Encounter an original Enigma and tap out messages on a perfect replica.

Then help Allied agents trapped behind Nazi lines by coding and decoding messages in our Encryption Challenge.

Deception

Could you live a lie? The most damaging spy in FBI history sold secrets to the Russians for 22 years. Meet the young Spycatcher who brought him down.

Then learn how to spot a liar, and to lie convincingly, in our Deception Challenge.

Surveillance

Surveillance isn’t just about enemies of the state. Do our governments and corporations strike the right balance between security, service and freedom? What does personal surveillance look like?

Keep your eyes on the target in our 360° degree ambisonic Surveillance Challenge.

Hacking

Meet the teenager who hacked the CIA, the world’s first cyber weapon (which sabotaged Iran’s nuclear program), and the organized hacking groups trying to change our political landscapes.

Learn how to protect yourself online and meet our in-house hackers at the Hacking Bar.

Special Ops

Learn about one of the greatest Special Ops Officers of all time. Virginia Hall spent years undercover in Nazi-occupied France, conducting espionage and sabotaging Hitler’s war machine.

Meet the original “Q” who inspired the James Bond character. Encounter amazing gadgets used by WWII spies.

Test your strategy and agility in our laser tunnel Special Ops Challenge.

intelligence

Meet “the spy who saved the world”. The secrets that Oleg Penkovsky passed to the CIA in 1961–2 let President Kennedy know he had time to negotiate a diplomatic solution to the Cuban missile crisis, and thus avert World War III. Analysts made sense of Penkovsky’s material so that a potentially world-saving decision could be made.

Debrief

Discover your inner spy. Our Spy Profile system was developed by a former head of training at British Intelligence to assign you one of 10 spy roles—including Cryptologist, Spycatcher, Special Ops Officer, and Analyst. You can find out more about our profiling system here and buy tickets to SPYSCAPE here.
