A James Bond exhibition will be held in New York City some time in early 2019, according to an announcement posted on Eon Productions’ official 007 website.

The exhibition is being organized by Spyscape, a New York spy museum, Eon and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. An excerpt from the short announcement:

The exhibition will be held at SPYSCAPE’s 60,000 square foot HQ in midtown. SPYSCAPE is open every day for would be secret agents to discover their Spy Role and receive their own personalised Spy Profile developed by top psychologists and a former Head of Training for British Intelligence.

Spyscape describes itself as providing “a fun and fascinating outing for friends and families…SPYSCAPE was developed by a world-class team of curators, designers, gamers, hackers, intelligence professionals, investigative journalists and psychologists – who all want to inspire you!”

Spyscape has set up a registration page “for early access to information and tickets for our new 007 exhibition & experience.” No information, for now, on precise dates.

UPDATE (1:50 p.m. New York time): Reader (and sometimes guest writer) Gert Waterink posted on Facebook there have been previous 007 exhibitions in New York. His example: A 1987 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art featuring donations from Eon co-founder Albert R. Broccoli.

UPDATE II (2:30 p.m. New York time): The Bond experience produced a video about Spyscape in April. Here it is.
