2) Area 51 (Nevada,USA)

Area 51 located roughly 100 miles north of Las Vegas

For decades, a U.S. military installation located roughly 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Las Vegas had been one of the worst-kept secrets on the planet. Area 51, as it's commonly known to UFO conspiracy theorists and aviation buffs who piece together the details of classified military spy plane prototypes, is a place whose existence the U.S. government long refused even to acknowledge.

The sign above states that deadly force can be used if people enter the Area 51 zone

4) Bohemian Grove (California,USA)

The Bohemian Grove is a 2700 acre redwood forest, located in Monte Rio, CA. It contains accommodation for 2000 people to "camp" in luxury. It is owned by the Bohemian Club.The Bohemian Club is a private. all male club, which is headquartered in the Bohemian building in San Francisco. It was formed in 1872 by men who sought shelter from the frontier culture (or lack of culture).

Pagan Ritual on Bohemian Grove
At these retreats, the members commune with nature in a truly original way. They drink heavily from morning through the night, bask in their freedom to urinate on the redwoods, and perform pagan rituals . Some engage in homosexual activity. Although women are not allowed in the Grove, members often leave at night to enjoy the company of the many prostitutes who come from around the world for this event. 

5) Vatican Secret Archieve (Vatican City)

contain the oldest documents from the 8th century CE
The Vatican’s secret archives are located in the heart of Vatican City. They contain more than 50 miles of shelves. According to the Vatican, the oldest documents here come from the 8th century CE, and from the 11th century on, the church has kept a more or less continuous chronological archive. Within this archive, you’ll find a note from Genghis Khan’s grandson demanding tribute. You’ll also find letters from Michelangelo, and a note carved on birch bark from Native Americans. Despite their mysterious reputation, it’s not impossible to enter these archives. It’s just very, very difficult.

6) Room 39 (Pyongyang, North Korea)

Room 39 (also referred to as Bureau 39, Division 39, or Office 39) is a secretive Democratic People's Republic of Korea government organization that seeks ways to maintain the foreign currency slush fund of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un. The organization holds as much as $5 billion in funds, and may be involved in illegal activities, such as counterfeiting $100 bills, production of controlled substances (including the synthesis of methamphetamine and the conversion of morphine-containing opium into pure morphine salts, like heroin) and international insurance fraud.

Although the seclusion of the North Korean state makes it difficult to evaluate this kind of information, many claim that Room 39 is critical to Kim Jong-un's continued power,[dubious – discuss] enabling him to buy political support and to help fund North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
Room 39 is believed to be located inside a ruling Workers' Party building in Pyongyang,[4] not far from Kim's villa.

7) Pine Gap (Australia)

Pine Gap is a secretive facility nearly 20km south-west of Alice Springs which has been there since 1970. Run by both Australia and the United States, its official name is the Joint Defence Facility Pine Gap.

Prohibited Area "Turn around Now"
Pine Gap is essentially a satellite tracking station, situated in the middle of nowhere because that makes it hard for other countries to intercept the signals emitted from within. It is thought that the US controls all of its spy satellites from Pine Gap, and that the US and Australia "listen to Asia" from the 14 antennae concealed beneath white domes at Pine Gap.

8) White's Gentlemen's Club (France)

White's Gentlemen's Club
White’s is the most exclusive English gentlemen’s club. It was founded in 1693 by Italian Francesco Bianco (Francis White) to sell the newly discovered hot chocolate but eventually became a typical (but extremely private) gentlemen’s club. The club is famous for its “betting book” in which members make bizarre gambles. The most famous of which is a 3,000 pound bet on which of two raindrops would slide down the window first. So why is this club on the list? Women are excluded completely from membership, so that is half our audience out. Secondly, men who want to join this exclusive club can only do so if invited by a sitting member who has the support of two other members. Unless you are a member of royalty, or are extremely powerful in politics or the arts, you are unlikely to ever see the exclusive White’s invitation.

9) Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion (Ethiopia)

Located just outside the Ethiopian town of Axum, the Church of Our Virgin Mary of Zion was the crowning place for many Ethiopian emperors and remains an important centre of pilgrimage. The site is supposedly home to the original Ark of the Covenant, the chest containing the 10 commandments, and strictly out of bounds to tourists.

Indeed, the only person allowed to view the ancient artefact is the Guardian monk, leading many to doubt its existence. The Guardian monk is appointed for life by his predecessor, before the latter dies, and is then required to spend the rest of this life within the confines of the church. Probably not a job for types who find office life constraining, then.

10) Jiangsu National Security Education Museum (China)

Jiangsu National Security Education Museum "Chinese only"

chinese spy stuff
Technically, this museum is open to an awful lot of people - the Chinese. Unfortunately, the rest of the world is barred because of the collection's sensitive subject matter: espionage. Nonetheless, more than 500 people have trekked through the four halls of the museum since it opened in 2009 to inspect exhibits that reputedly include guns disguised as lipsticks, maps hidden within decks of cards and hollowed-out coins that were used to hide documents; you will also find (or, rather, you won't) information about wire-tapping techniques and former top secret weapons, alongside displays of intelligence service uniforms
