  • This place does not get alot of press - probably because of the nature of the people who run it! But it is free, there is (usually) plenty of free parking, and the range of topics and displays is grea...  more »
  • The best part about visiting this museum is that you get to drive by and look at the NSA from a distance. If you are looking to visit a museum with some pizazz - try the spy museum in DC.  more »
  • This is a great museum if you are interested in code-breaking. It is not a rip-off for profit trifle like the so-called "Spy Museum" in DC. This is built by, and run by, people with deep knowledge and...  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.
