Access the adventure where science and imagination meet.

Explore the iconic cars, gadgets and props of the James Bond film series. 007 Science: Inventing the World of James Bond is the first-ever official exhibition to focus on the science and technology behind the world’s longest-running movie franchise. 

Go behind the scenes to learn how the Bond production teams harness real-world science to craft 007’s on-screen adventures. See fantastical gadgets created for the Bond films alongside the real-life inventions they prefigured—see a prototype jetpack from “Thunderball” and the modern Gravity Industries Jet Suit.

You’ll also enter a lab space inspired by “Q”—the source of secret field technologies in the Bond movies—and test your abilities to design the perfect spy vehicle, dangle from a steel beam, and devise amazing stunts. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the science behind the tech and technique of the world’s most famous spy.

007 Science: Inventing the World of James Bond is open through October 27, 2024. It is not included in Museum Entry and requires an additional ticket.
