Mission Top Secret Birthday

Recruits will go on a secret "scavenger hunt style" mission where their tradecraft skills will be put to the test! Along the way, they will craft a cover story, slip into disguise, and decode secret messages. Will they succeed? That’s classified…at least for now. 

Each Mission Top Secret Birthday Kit includes:

  • 2 copies of the mission activity folio 
  • 2 copies of the parent mission guide
  • 2 copies of the mission activity map
  • 2 pens or pencils
  • 2 cipher wheels 
  • 10 fake mustaches
  • A classified pouch to hold all your materials


$75 per kit, $60 for members. (1 kit per celebration)

  • We recommend at least 1 parent for every 4 recruits.
  • Mission activities take place throughout the exhibits on the 5th and 4th floors.
  • Mission Top Secret Birthday activities include getting into disguise, cracking codes, staying cool under pressure and much more! (Sample question: Spies are everywhere including the Internet. Sneak into the Cyber Infinity Room and take a stealthy team photo!)
  • SPY Educators are not available to facilitate parties. 
  • Food and drink are not allowed in the Museum. There is also not a place to store presents.
  • A party space is not available.
