What kind of a spy are you?

SPYSCAPE is located in a modern-design building, with a total area of no less than 60,200 Square Feet. The adventure begins as soon as you enter the enormous lift. Here, you’ll watch a film briefing you on the upcoming assignments. So, you will be well prepared and able to get started right away.

The museum is divided into seven sections, each of which deals with a different espionage theme such as cyber warfare, deception and intelligence services. All visitors receive a wristband; when scanned at each section it retrieves and logs details of the assignment. For example, at ‘Surveillance’ you can test your security skills by finding out how quick you are at finding people on surveillance cameras. Then, at ‘Deception’, you watch a number of interviews and decide whether the subject is lying, or telling the truth. When you have completed all assignments, the results are analysed and you’ll discover what kind of spy you are. Are you a spy catcher, a technical ops officer or better suited to one of the other profiles?

Eric’s Tip: SPYSCAPE spy museum is a mix between an experience and a museum. Espionage throughout the ages is all covered, including current themes like privacy and social media. I found the experience surprisingly fun. Visit this attraction on a rainy day or after you have seen all the well-known sights. SPYSCAPE is a bit too complicated for very young children, it is more suited to kids from 10 and up. I spent around an hour visiting SPYSCAPE, so you don’t lose too much time here.
