National Cryptologic Museum Opens New Exhibit On Nation's Past Secrets
FORT MEADE, Md. – The National Cryptologic Museum (NCM), which reveals many of the nation's most vital secrets in history, the people who created and broke codes, and the tools they used, announces a new Cryptologic Treasures exhibit.
Last year, the NCM introduced the "Cryptologic Treasures" exhibit as a rotating display, meaning the museum would change the artifacts periodically to showcase some of the more unique artifacts in its collection. The new items include:
The NCM showcases some of the rarest items in American cryptology, revealing the evolution of code making and code breaking and secrets that changed the course of history. Its research library maintains a collection of unclassified and declassified books and documents relating to every aspect of cryptology and is an excellent resource to students, scholars, and those with an interest in this once secret world.
The museum is located at Routes 295 and 32 adjacent to the Ft. Meade, Md., Army post. For more information on the museum, tours, educational programs, and hours and days of operation, visit www.nsa.gov.
