Spy Museum, Tampere

3.4
#6 of 22 in Museums in Tampere
Reputed to be Europe's only such site, Spy Museum gives a rare look into espionage, its history, and its importance. The museum's exhibits showcase a wide variety of spy kits and gadgets, including eavesdropping tools, miniature weapons, and optic devices, and teaches you about common methods used to obtain information. As part of the interactive exhibits, you can try out an infra-red device, attempt to pass a lie detector test, and find a secret room with an espionage tunnel in it. The site also features stories of spies like Richard Sorge--the individual who reportedly instigated Hitler's failure. Don't miss taking an "agent test" to find out whether you belong to the CIA, Mossad, the British MI6, or some other national intelligence agency.

  • One of a kind museum. U get to learn about the 20nth century espionage with exact replicas and even real gear. U also get the chance to try some of it like using invisible ink, long distance hear devices, or even calling a number and hearing urself through a wall. Definitely recommend!!
  • Very interesting, tells a lot about history of spies and conspiracies surrounding spies. Different intelligence gathering devices to test and read about from NV goggles to handguns to airplanes and hidden microphones and recorder scanners. Almost everything is told in Finnish and English language.
