Should you book Spyscape tickets in advance?

We highly recommend booking your Spyscape tickets in good time if you don’t want to miss out on the best slots. It’s a popular place, especially with families, so tickets can sell out during holiday periods.

Reserving your places in advance means you can compare prices online and find the best deals, so it’s a win-win situation.

What will you see inside the Spyscape Museum?

Your Spyscape tickets are the key to a mind-boggling world of espionage and gadgetry. This is your chance to see if you have what it takes to become a spy and test your skills against specially designed challenges set by real agents.

The Museum

Hear the stories of heroic spies who changed the course of history and discover what went on behind the scenes during several international wars. From an original World War II Enigma machine to a United States spy plane camera, there’s plenty here to get those brain cells whirring.

There are telescopic robots and bugging devices too, as well as an actual virus that was used to attack Iran’s nuclear program.

The Experience

Budding agents will enjoy an interactive journey packed with secret codes, encrypted riddles and immersive challenges that have been set by the former MI6 Head of Training. Will you make the grade?

You’ll finish the course with newfound superpowers, as well as a personal spy profile that will help you on your next mission, should you choose to accept it. If you’re looking for a new career, this could be it!
