Spy Museum, Tampere

3.4
#6 of 18 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.

  • Not particularly interesting Museum for big money. The Museum cannot be photographed. Part of the exhibits you can touch. Some we do not poejali. There is a description of each exhibit. A bunch of icons. Actually tell how Finns followed us and we followed them and a little about other countries. Well you can put 4 and not more than at the end.

  • Small but very interesting museum about spying & co themes. Definitely worth the visit if one has some spare time in Tampere.  more »
  • Quite a small museum once you find it, but has some interesting artefacts on display. My only complaint is not all of the display information is in English which is a shame. An interesting experience ...  more »

  • Very nice idea and interesting exhibition. Some interactive stuff to test. I was pleasantly suprised. There was a lot of history and also introduction about some fresh spy cases. Exhibitions and examples around the world. Why I take off some points - no photos policy, mostly only finnish and museum shop could have bigger selection.
  • The idea of this museum is great. Presentation could be better in quality. Good fun. Recommend!
  • Interesting place, small but many gadgets are worthy to see.
  • Lots of cool gizmos and presentations of real life spying! Well worth the 5€ entry fee!
  • This museum freak sucks!!!!! With a capital F and lower case uck.
