Interactive Museum Lets Visitors Experience The Spy Life
Skyscape is a recently opened museum in New York City that aims to educate guests about espionage while immersing them in engaging activities
Skyscape, a new space in New York City’s midtown, isn’t your average arts and culture museum. The institution is aimed to help visitors delve deep into the world of espionage through stories and unique experiences. The museum spans 60,000 square feet and features different exhibits devoted to specific spy themes.
The stories include ones about WWII code-breakers and a one-legged spy who successfully avoided the Nazis. Interactive exhibits such as multi-media walls helps make this experience unique and exciting to visitors, providing engaging activities like testing lie-detecting machines and running through laser tunnels like those often seen in spy movies. To top it all off, the museum creates a profile for each visitor, giving them a label like a hacker or a handler.
