Someones watching you
A visit to the German Spy Museum allows you to have a peek at the history of the hidden world of espionage and how the secret services have operated across the globe.

Exhibitions cover a wide range of topics and allow you to take a look at what happened in ancient times to the present day including:
World War 1 & 2
The Cold War
Spy Cameras
Listening Devices
Spy Gear
Animals as spies
Espionage in movies
and many other areas of the secretive world of espionage

As you wander around, you'll find thousands of items on display with detailed information signs and tablets that have lots more information. They also have many exhibits that are hands-on, with some being highly interactive, including the laser room.

You can test your skills moving around a dark room with moving laser beams, where you try to avoid touching them while a timer is running. If you manage to get to the end without touching the lasers, there is a stop button for the clock, which then puts your name up on the scoreboard.

Cameras are located everywhere to give you the idea that you are always under surveillance.

Depending on how busy it is, two to three hours would be long enough to look at and read everything. The only downside during our visit was how many people they let in, making it hard to stop and look at some exhibits and causing long queues at some of the hands-on ones like the laser room. Other than that, it's a good attraction.

After you've seen everything, when you go out to the exit, it takes you to their gift shop and cafe, which is reasonably priced and offers a good range of drinks and snacks. You can go to the cafe without visiting the museum.
