Welcome to the National Cryptologic Museum Foundation (NCMF)

The NCMF directly supports the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM), the first public museum in the U.S. Intelligence Community.

Located adjacent to the National Security Agency (NSA) in Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, the NCM houses a priceless collection of artifacts that represent our Nation's history in code making and code breaking. The world class library in the NCM provides visitors an unprecedented opportunity to study works on Cryptology from the very rare to contemporary. The NCMF is also leading the effort to build a new Cyber Center for Education and Innovation ~ Home of the National Cryptologic Museum.

Learn about the joint mission of the NCMF & NCM, and the ways in which the NCMF supports the Museum HERE. Thank you for visiting!

  • The December 11th 2017 Google Doodle Celebrates the 135th birthday of Max Born, the physicist and mathematician who discovered one of the most important rules in quantum mechanics. Just after World War I, Max Born, a German scientist, cracked the code that would help future generations of scientists understand the laws of modern quantum physics. The theory of quantum mechanics supports the basis of modern technology, for everything from supercomputers and ultra-precise timekeeping to digital encryption. It describes the movement of photons, electrons, and other subatomic particles.
