Calling All Spies!

Prepare to accept your mission! Decipher clues, crack codes and get a special look at the History Center’s newest exhibit: Spies, Traitors and Saboteurs during The Great Caper: Operation Spy!, Sat., March 31 beginning at 10 a.m.

The History Center provides the clues as spies-in-training hop on and off the TECO streetcar line through Channelside and Ybor City in search of espionage, history and mystery. Get things started with a scavenger hunt inside the museum before sneaking off to see some of Tampa's historic urban landmarks and treasures. Return to the History Center for spy crafts including creating a homemade cipher wheel and writing with invisible ink.

The Great Caper: Operation Spy! takes place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. $12 per child; $18 per adult includes streetcar fare and TBHC admission for the day. TBHC members receive a $3 discount for adults and a $2 discount for children. Pre-registration is recommended.

The Great Caper: Operation Spy! is sponsored by the Tampa Downtown Partnership and the TECO Line Streetcar System.
