Time Out says

This exhibition is a must-see for anyone keen to have a peek into the mysterious world of espionage. Covering human stories, clandestine operations and secret messages, ‘Spies, Lies and Deception’ delves into the world of spying and how it’s been transformed since the First World War. The collection showcases 150 objects, newly digitised films and specially commissioned interviews. Highlights include the story of Noor Inayat Khan, the first woman wireless operator sent to Occupied France, and how the secret service have created hidden weapons over the last few decades. It’s well worth some investigation.
