The first espionage museum in the world
Espionage has been a major factor in almost every part of society: in politics, econony, warfare, corporate and idealistic rivalry.
In the game of espionage, a single person or a technical device has the power to change the course of development and even the whole world more than official governments.
The map of the world would be very different without espionage. Although small gadgets and persons have pushed development where it benefits themselves the most, still your average school history book don´t mention people like Richard Sorge, who´s information was key in ending Hitlers winning streak. Or the Enigma cipher, breaking it´s code was vital for Europe.
So that the public would have a chance to get to know all these legendary characters with their methods and tools, the worlds first Spy Museum was established in 1998. And this happened in a country that´s been a busy field in espionage, because of it´s geopolitical and technological status.
The Spy Museum is open every day all year. In winter (September-May) we are open mon-sun 11am - 5pm.
