About the author

In my profession I have the rare fortune to combine my two greatest passions: travelling and writing. Even as a child, I couldn't get excited about a week of pure beach holidays.

While I was studying comparative linguistics and cultural studies at the University of... Read more

At New York's Spyscape Museum, you'll immerse yourself in the world of espionage. The special thing about it is that you experience first hand what it means to be a CIA or FBI agent.

At the beginning of your visit, you'll get a bracelet put on. With this bracelet you can unlock tasks and complete personality tests at the various stations of the exhibition. For example, you can expect an interrogation situation in which you are supposed to unmask a liar or are recorded while lying, a room full of video cameras in which you have to identify conspicuous people, or encrypted messages that need to be decoded. One of the absolute highlights for the visitors is a laser tunnel. Here, in typical Hollywood action movie style, you have to pass the lasers to reach the other end of the tunnel.

Finally, the bracelet is used to analyze your results from the tests and assignments, and to rate your skills as a spy. You'll find out which role in a US agency like the CIA or FBI would be the most suitable for you, including Agent Handler, a manager who provides agents with secret information and supports them in their operational espionage work, the Surveillance Officer, who is entrusted with the secret surveillance of suspicious targets or the Spycatcher, whose task is to expose enemy spies.

The visit usually lasts one and a half to two hours. The museum also has a souvenir shop and a bookshop with literature on the subject.
