  • Absolutely great museum! Like everyone else we were entranced by the opportunity to use an Enigma machine to decode a message....super cool. Wonderful time. 
  • Where else (but the CIA gift store) can you buy an NSA golf ball? Where else can you touch an enigma machine and wonder about the fascinating stories of history's cryptographers and covert collectors?...  more »
  • We began by touring the museum on our own and then attended a docent led tour where we learned so many interesting "extra" facts. They have some very interesting items and provide lots of information ...  more »

  • If you are interested in cryptology and how it started, this is the place for you. Tons of info... They offer self-guided and guided tours, a library, kids area and a conference space. No charge to walk through the museum. This is a great place to visit before heading down to DC to check out the Spy museum.
  • Great place to take kids. The museum is well curated, seated right outside the gates of NSA... Really cool place to visit.
  • You must go if you are in the area, at least once. They have two real, ENIGMA machines that you can use to encrypt/decrypt messages with! Many treasures and stories from ancient to modern times, describing how messages were kept hidden and how they were revealed.
  • Nice museum, run by the NSA. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. A great look into our cryptographic past. They have some great enigma machines to play with!
  • First of all it's free. They have some really fascinating pieces to see throughout the age of cryptology.
