928 8th Ave, New York City, New York, NY 10019

The Basics

There are seven interactive galleries spread throughout the museum, dedicated to deception, encryption, surveillance, hacking, intelligence, cyber warfare, and special ops. Each gallery presents artifacts and technology related to the history of espionage while illuminating stories of double agents, code breakers, and hackers. Visitors are handed digital wristbands on entry so they can test their own skills in decoding, surveillance, lie detection, and even navigating a laser tunnel by completing challenges, developed with input from former intelligence agency directors. The experience ends in the debriefing room, where visitors are assigned a spy role, from analyst to spymaster.

Operation would be SPY
All of it was great historical facts on spying and immersing in some of the spy exercises plus at the end getting your score to each and the type of spy you would be based on your score.

The kids loved all the hands on activity and then the personal analysis done on them. It was really cool how we could all go at our own pace and do activities multiple times if we wanted to. Highly recommend!
