Spy: The Secret World of Espionage at Discovery Times Square


Looking for a fun way to spend time with your family and find out about the life of a spy? Head to Discovery Times Square to learn about the secret world of spies and how they operated throughout time.


Entering the exhibit, one can find artifacts from the CIA and FBI that tell the stories of the past. It is an educational experience filled with facts from the World Wars and Afghanistan. Learning about the welbikes and Sleeping Beauty, the British WWII Two-Man Submersible, were favorites for my family.

A big highlight for all ages is the Lazer Maze where one needs to carefully go through the security lazer beams without sounding an alarm. It gave me the feeling that I was going through a lazer dance navigated by Nightfox in the movie, Ocean's 12.

Another favorite in this interactive world of espionage is to become an agent and disguise your voice. Technology allows an "agent" to pick and choose how they want to sound. This was definitely a crowd pleaser.

The Spy Exhibit is at Discovery Times Square, located at 226 West 44th Street.

The interactive exhibition is open Sunday – Thursday, from 10am – 8pm, and Friday – Saturday, from 10am – 9pm, with the last allowed entry 45 minutes prior to closing each night.
