New James Bond Museum opens in the Alps
The new James Bond Museum is located more than 10,000 feet above sea level at the summit of the Gaislachkogl (try to say that out loud) mountain, which looms over the ski resort of Solden in the Austrian Alps.
The reasoning for such a strange location, and as some of you 007 fans might already know, is due to the fact that scenes from Bond’s latest adventure – Spectre – were shot here in 2015, and one local businessman was determined his hometown would not disappear from the spotlight. Fair dues!
According to independent.ie there are nine zones in total, with the content on display closely associated to a film than a traditional museum. Delightful news if you are Bond fan travelling to the Austrian Alps soon…But with all these Ryanair strikes going on, I don’t think such a person exists in Ireland at the moment!
Anywho, apparently it has been open since mid-July with British actress Naomie Harris – Moneypenny – officially opened the building around that time. I guess it is one you can add to the bucket list!
