  • 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.
