Fun activity to do with friends or for a family. Definitely recommend to get the all areas ticket and allow a good 2 to 3 hours to benefit from the full experience! We got super competitive following the clues and different challenges and definitely enjoyed finding out what type of spy we could be based on our different skills and traits. The exhibits, displays and interactive challenges are well laid out and designed to be informative in an entertaining way. I would definitely recommend it for visitors to NY.

I went to Spyscape on a recent Friday afternoon after having bought a ticket through Groupon. I have to say that the customer service was excellent because when I emailed about how to get the ticket in advance (it seemed like Groupon was walk up only) they helped me out very quickly and sent me a timed ticket. The experience was a lot of fun from start to finish. The interactive games were excellent and worked well and the informative exhibits were also of good quality. I was there for about 2 hours and did all of the experiences and the 007 exhibit. It really exceeded my expectations and getting your spy role at the end was a great finish!

We all had such a great time. What an amazing place. It is clean, well organized, the electronic exhibits work and the staff is super friendly and helpful!! My husband and I enjoyed learning all about spies etc, while our kids (teenagers) had a blast with all the interactive exhibits. Fun for everyone in the family! I am so happy we discovered this, we will go back when we have visitors!!

Went as part of City Pass, and so glad we did - don't think its something we would have thought of outside of that. Had an absolutely brilliant time - great learning and then taking part in the interactive content. Really interesting & something different. Would go again.

Interesting museum. Fun interactive experience. I feel like the website hyped it to be more. The 007 extra experience...absolutely unimpressive. It was a bunch of car parts to the famous James Bond car, movies clips and ....nope that it’s. I felt it was anti climatic.
