The Museum of Technology at the Palace of Culture and Science is hosting an unusual exhibition entitled The Secret World of Espionage Technology until Feb. 15. The exhibition comprises 150 spy tools used by the most famous intelligence agencies such as the CIA, the KGB and the British MI6. The items include cryptographic machines, specialist weapons and cameras and tape recorders hidden in objects of everyday use.

Visitors can see items such as a KGB agent's interrogation kit and a magnifying glass inserted inside the tip of a cigarette.

On display are also gadgets from James Bond movies which up to now could only be seen on the silver screen. The 007 "toys" at the Museum of Technology include the famous silver Aston Martin and a BMW packed with spy gear.

Visitors can also put their skills to the test and play logic and espionage games at the exhibition.
