It is set to open on 12th July and will be reached via the Gaislachkoglbahn cable car.

Visitors are taken on a multi-sensory journey, with emotive soundscapes, dramatic programmed lighting, and high-quality visual projections.

This project which is called 007 ELEMENTS features a collaboration between creative director Neal Callow (art director on Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre) and Optimist Inc.

"It's an authentic James Bond movie location, it's inside the top of a mountain at 3,000 meters up in the air," Neal Callow stated.

"We were looking for a perfect environment... somewhere high in the mountains with a unique, modern piece of architectural style," Callow added.

Built into the permafrost of a mountain and regulated at 1 degree Celsius, this museum features multi-sensory galleries with names like "Barrel of the Gun," "The Lair," and "Tech Room" that will allow visitors to wander through immersive audiovisual exhibits.

What's more, there are also classic props and paraphernalia such as a full-scale airplane from Spectre.

The experience is guaranteed to give visitors an experience closer to a movie than a traditional museum.

Located 3040 metres above sea level, the 1300-square-metre building offers breathtaking views of the Tyrolean valleys. The grand windows offer views of the Ötztal Alps and locations used in the making of the 2015 film Spectre.

"Our aim with 007 ELEMENTS is to tell the story of the making of 007 films in an ultra-modern, emotive and engaging way. We want to use this incredible location to place our guests into Bond's environment, and bring the stories to life in a unique and unforgettable way," Neal Callow stated.

How does the exhibition work? Guests will be able to purchase tickets for a specific time slot as there is a timed exhibition.

The first half of the installation is programmed sequences, and then guests are free to explore the remaining galleries at their own pace.

So if you're a James Bond fan, a flight to Austria should be on your wishlist!
