Tickets on Sale NOW for SPY: The Secret World of Espionage

SEATTLE, WA (March 6, 2014) – Step into the pages of history to discover the tools and techniques used to protect our country—spy stories cloaked in secrecy until now. Agents and officers from around the globe reveal all in this interactive experience featuring more than 200 recently declassified items. For the first time, explore CIA, FBI, KGB and NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) artifacts and learn about true covert operations that changed history at SPY: The Secret World of Espionage. Mission activates at Pacific Science Center Saturday, March 29. Tickets are on sale now.

This first-ever public exhibition features treasures from leading national intelligence agencies as well as the immense private collection of renowned intelligence historian and international author about spy technology, H. Keith Melton.

Peek into a hollowed tooth that conceals the smallest of spy devices; try to decipher a microdot that hides a full page of text in the period at the end of a sentence; investigate the downing of Pan Am Flight 103- one of the largest terrorism investigations in history; meet “Charlie,” the remote-controlled robotic catfish spawned by the CIA’s Directorate of Science and Technology for aquatic missions; and come face-to-face with KGB surveillance photos taken during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Experience what it’s like to be a spy firsthand and test your spy skills with modules and interactive activities for agents of all ages. Disguise yourself and alter your voice to become unrecognizable to civilians; navigate your way through the perilous complexities of an actual laser field without tripping a circuit!

“We are thrilled to host an exhibit that explores the rich history of espionage,” said Bryce Seidl, President and CEO for Pacific Science Center. “These exquisite artifacts weave together untold stories behind some of the most significant events that shaped the world we live in today, demonstrating how espionage has always ridden the leading edge of technological advancement.”
