Top Secret: License to Spy Opens at Knowlton Museum in Downtown Port Huron

The Knowlton Museum in Downtown Port Huron is now the home to the Top Secret: License to Spy exhibit. The interactive, hands-on, family-friendly installation comes to town thanks to the donation of the space by the Knowlton family and the work of the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.  The exhibit is a production of Imagine Exhibitions.

This is the first temporary exhibit in the space that formerly held the huge collection of ice harvesting and other memorabilia owned by the Knowlton Family. The artifacts are currently in storage.

According to the Community Foundation, the exhibit has a James Bond style with exotic locations and high-tech equipment to be explored while solving a mystery. Those who undertake the mission will explore science and technology while taking a look at the undercover world of spying and espionage.

The exhibit is perfect for school groups and there is assistance for classrooms that need help to finance the trip. The cost is $10 per person with little ones aged 3 and younger free. The exhibit is now open for business and runs through September 5th. The experience takes 60-90 minutes to complete.

The exhibit is open to the public Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Jackie Hanton, Vice-President of the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, said, “As a mom of two children in elementary school, I couldn’t be more excited to have a hands-on and interactive opportunity available locally for our families. The Spy exhibit has over 20 different stations within the exhibit that will have kids intrigued and excited.”

Hanton said, “They can find hidden microphones and cameras, crack a safe, decode things, and find hidden images plus so much more. I highly recommend it for anyone with kids from the ages of 5-15 years old. But we’ll love it as parents too!”
