National Cryptological Museum

National Cryptological Museum at the National Security Agency (NSA)

Enigma Machine


Last fall I visited the National Cryptological Museum located at the National Security Agency (NSA) in Ft. Meade, Maryland. The museum features an amazing collection of items from the history of cryptology and spy technology, including several Enigma machines and two Cray supercomputers. Here are my photos of the museum.

The National Cryptologic Museum is the National Security Agency’s principal gateway to the public. It shares the Nation’s, as well as NSA’s, cryptologic legacy and place in world history. Located adjacent to NSA Headquarters, Ft. George G. Meade, Maryland, the Museum houses a collection of thousands of artifacts that collectively serve to sustain the history of the cryptologic profession. Here visitors can catch a glimpse of some of the most dramatic moments in the history of American cryptology: the people who devoted their lives to cryptology and national defense, the machines and devices they developed, the techniques they used, and the places where they worked.
