The NCMF helps to make new exhibits and educational displays possible at the National Cryptologic Museum. The Magic Planet Interactive Display featured in the photo is part of the updated Information Assurance exhibit and was sponsored by the Foundation. The Magic Planet highlights the history of communications in a compelling, visual, and interactive medium that visitors of all ages enjoy. Click to learn more about this Exhibit. In addition to traditional exhibits and displays, the Foundation has also helped to provide the Museum with cryptography game kiosks for kids of all ages to enjoy. Learn more.
The Foundation also strives to acquire rare and valuable items for the Museum and Library. Over the years, the Foundation has obtained a wide variety of artifacts and publications, including a special collection donated by Dr. David Kahn.
Below are examples of acquisitions, such as the START Telemetry Processing Equipment. Eventually, this unique exhibit will include the large pieces of equipment that were built by Russia prior to START. There is a great deal to learn in this exhibit and accompanying materials. Click here to learn more about the START exhibit.
The acquisitions collage (also below) features the rare B207 Hitler's Enigma, a machine that belongs to a very special series believed to have been designated for use at the Führer Hauptquartier (Fuhrer Headquarters). Also pictured are the Beyer Cipher Pocket Watch and a very special signed USS Liberty T-Shirt. From photographs, to equipment, ciphers, old letters and toys, the list of acquisitions is extensive and interesting. Click to learn more about Acquisitions.
Every year, the Foundation provides Members and guests with quarterly cryptologic programs featuring relevant topics and expert guest speakers.
The Foundation also partners with other institutions such as University of Maryland University College (UMUC) to host educational programs and symposiums, such as the Cyber at the Crossroads Symposium. Click to learn more about our programs.
Of course the Foundation continues its campaign to raise funds for the Cyber Center for Education & Innovation (CCEI) and (New) Home of the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM). This new facility will include a cyber education, conference, and training center; a state of the art museum of cryptology; world class research and rare books library, and a Memorial Air Park.
