German Spy Museum Berlin

Show location on map
Deutsches Spionagemuseum

Opened in 2015, the German Spy Museum leads its visitors through the history of one of the oldest professions in the world: the spy. Spread over 3000 square metres in the heart of historic Berlin, the exhibition presents the first secret agents of antiquity, moving through time to arrive at the Cold War, a conflict which transformed Berlin into the world capital of espionage. A large-scale interactive map shows the former locations of the world’s top secret services in Berlin; the position of safe houses and the best places for agent exchanges. Multi-media installations and interviews with former spies and historians combine to tell a thrilling story. Original artefacts and replicas – micro-cameras in cigarette lighters, shoe bugs and much more – illustrate spectacular stories such as the murder of the Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov in 1978 with a poisoned umbrella. The exhibition also tells the story of the development of codes – visitors can try their hand at coding at an interactive station – and finishes in the world of James Bond.
