Top Secret Queensland MuseumAre you ready to discover the secret world of spies and solve the mystery?

Worldwide, agencies are on alert. Radar surveillance suggests boat movements off the coast. Meanwhile, there is evidence of a break in, at the secret headquarters of a large corporation. But are these events linked?

With exciting hands-on exhibits, this is one exhibition you won’t want to miss!
