Devious disguises, gadgets, gizmos and other tools of the spy trade have sneaked into the IWM Shop - all inspired by the Horrible Histories®: Spies exhibition at IWM London.
Set out on your own secret mission through the exhibition, collecting stamps to see what you need in a spy kit - but be quick, you never know who might be on your tail!
Find out how secret agents changed their appearance to fool the enemy – and create your own devious disguise to become the ultimate sneaky spy!
Uncover the deadly world of spies at this major interactive exhibition for families. Horrible Histories®: Spies brings the horrible history of Second World War spies and their secret schemes to life, based on Terry Deary’s book from the bestselling Horrible Histories series.
Find out which sneaky spies told the biggest lies, how exploding rats were used to sabotage German factories, and what secret agents carried in their suitcases (apart from their socks!). From exploding camel poo to irritating itching powder, this exhibition reveals the terrible tricks, traps and techniques used by spies to make secret war on the enemy – all the gore and more!
Set out on your own spy mission through the exhibition. Follow the trail to collect stamps to see what’s in a clever spy’s kit and keep your wits about you as you test your undercover skills including using devious disguises, sniffing out invisible ink and cracking cunning codes. See objects used by Second World War spies and discover the stories of the real wartime Super Spies before finding out if you’ve got what it takes to join their ruthless ranks.
