IWM London is inviting families to venture into the world of Horrible Histories: Spies from this summer.

The exhibition is based on Terry Deary’s book of the same name, from the bestselling Horrible Histories series published by Scholastic Children’s Books.

The exhibition will open on Monday July 29 and explores the world of spies and spying during the Second World War. It features items from IWM’s Second World War collections, hands-on activities for all ages, digital and interactive elements and a ‘stamper trail’ that sets visitors on their own mission.

Families will make their way through the exhibition, encountering themes such as Ruthless Resistance, Cracking Codes, Great Gadgets, Savage Sabotage and Clever Camouflage, and will discover techniques used by cunning spies, including how to make invisible ink, crack codes and use fake feet.

A programme of free family activities will run alongside the exhibition during the school summer and half-term holidays and tickets are on sale from May 21.

Prices lead in at £6.20 for adults and £3.30 for children. Concession and family tickets are also available.
