The Beaney How to get here

Fun, interactive tasks to enjoy throughout the museum!

  • Spymaster
Test your skills, creativity and knowledge by completing five Spymaster tasks around the museum inspired by Canterbury’s Aphra Behn – 17th century playwright, poet, fiction-writer, translator and spy!

How it works…

  • Pick up a trail from an information desk
  • Find a location on the trail and ask staff for a Spymaster Task
  • Tasks can be completed in any order
  • For each successful task you complete you will get a stamp
  • Collect five stamps to become a certified Beaney Spymaster!

(Keen eyed visitors might spot some bonus tasks hidden around the museum to take part in on social media!)

All ages welcome, younger children may need support with some tasks. Sensory Spymaster bags are also available from the Aphra Behn: Literature’s Best Kept Secret exhibition.


Ask for Spymaster at museum information desks
