Limited number of seats available.
Sign up list will be on the message board in the registration area.
The National Cryptologic Museum is one of the few places
where the curtain is parted. Here visitors can glimpse some of
the dramatic moments in the history of American cryptology. The
people who devoted their lives to cryptology and national
defense, the machines they built, the techniques they used, and
the places where they worked, are on display. For the visitor,
some events in American history will take on a new meaning. For
the cryptologic professional, it is an opportunity to absorb the
heritage of the profession. Museum visitors are provided a brochure which addresses
displays and enables them to take a self-guided tour.
