When Ian Fleming created his famous James Bond character in 1953 with the book Casino Royale, readers across the world were drawn into the British secret service agent’s high-tech spy gadgets and debonair lifestyle. His character has taken a life of its own with numerous novels, major motion picture blockbusters, and now, a museum experience like no other in New York City.
This multi-sensory experience pulls the curtain back to let visitors explore the compelling process behind the 007 films while sharing the secrets of Bond’s legendary Aston Martin DB5. Visitors will have the opportunity to investigate an array of spy gadgets in Q’s famous lab, get close and personal with the original concept art from Oscar-winning production designer Sir Ken Adam’s studio, and enjoy some behind the scenes footage from Skyfall’s unforgettable finale. The spy museum experience will be open to the public on March 8 with prices for adults starting at $23.
