The exhibition called KGB Spy Museum has more than 1,200 unusual functioning exhibits. This unique collection features secret surveillance equipment and devices, used by the NKVD, the KGB and special divisions of the military. The KGB always possessed the latest and the most innovative technology and professionally trained specialists in their field, officers, and agents. Obsolete surveillance technique was either destroyed or transferred to the military. The museum contains many clandestine and portable radio communication devices, radio transmitters and receivers, communications jammers, bearing finders, remote eavesdropping equipment, and eavesdropping bugs. Also equipment for intrusions and secret surveillance, KGB phones and phone eavesdropping, and coding equipment. And there are detection devices like a unique secret metal detector for detecting eavesdropping equipment. Even weirder are isotopically marked documents, money, people, and animals. The KGB not only persecuted the common people, but also mistrusted their own colleagues and spied on them. There are also night vision devices, secret dictaphones and recorders, covert mini cameras, and masked undercover video recorders. Photographic and filming equipment was used for copying documents. The museum also has a UV and IR device for detection of micro objects.
