  • You can learn a lot of fascinating history at this museum. Plan to spend a couple of hours, and take a tour. Our group all enjoyed it. It’s a nice adjunct to the International Spy Museum in DC.  more »

  • What an awesome experience!! Free admission and only ask for donations. We chose to walk around by ourselves instead of with a tour group. However, if you have the time, I would definitely join a tour. Such knowledgeable and fun staff that really know how to engage the people. So much history here and a lot of cool fun facts and information. We had a really cool experience, thanks so much!!!
  • Have been meaning to visit this place for months and finally got a chance to stop by. I originally decided I would peruse their website to educate myself because I could not make it during their open hours, but I'm glad I did stop in. Reception was very friendly and welcoming. The museum itself coders a lot of historical facts that I never knew that helped me understand the present much better. There is also a library with a suggested reading list available. I really got a lot out of my visit and would happily recommend it for anyone interested in cryptology or language and mathematics and how they are used together to create a new meaning.
