National Cryptologic Museum - Annapolis Junction, MD

SAVE THE DATE! The much anticipated re-opening of the National Cryptologic Museum is scheduled for 8 October 2022! The Foundation will have a booth of information and host our Escape Room and our Cyber Game in the Museum's Magic Room. Join us to try your skills at both! The NCF will also bring along its wide range of used cryptology, history, and other related books. Pick out one or more books and make a donation to help fund NCF programs.

The newly re-opened Museum will provide visitors with an exciting opportunity to view recently re-discovered artifacts. In the summer of 2021, Museum staff kicked off a months-long endeavor to sort through and document hundreds of rare artifacts stowed away in an NSA warehouse. They unearthed amazing treasures, including a 500-pound artifact called the Russian Fish. It was a German multichannel intercept teletype machine from the 1940s that will eventually help headline the Museum’s Cold War-era collection. A collection of the newly revealed artifacts, many never seen by the public, will be on display when the museum re-opens. Learn more about this project via the link provided below.

In the photo here.... the new Cryptologic Hall of Honor exhibit will feature a "Trailblazers Wall" that will highlight underrepresented communities' contributions to cryptologic history.

Everyone with the Museum and Foundation look forward to seeing you soon! Please stay tuned for more details about what to expect in the newly renovated Museum!
