Spent two days here reading every single text written. it really is hard to imagine this all stopped only less than 3 decades ago. And the second floor where everything had been left as it was left me speechless.

I was 10 minutes late for the English tour but the staff were great and took me to a room where the other people on the tour were watching an introductory film so I didn't miss much. A young girl took us round, her English...More

Maybe I missed the point, but there was very little that surprised me in the museum. If you've seen a couple of Bond movies, especially the early ones then you know what to expect. Stories of spying, some gadgets, some 60's furniture/decor and trench coats....More
