Saturday at the Museum


ISSA National Capital Chapter invites you to join us for a guided tour of the National Cryptologic Museum. There is no charge to attend, and non-members and children over the age of 7 are welcome.


Museum SignThe National Cryptologic Museum is located adjacent to NSA Headquarters, Ft. George G. Meade, Maryland, and houses a collection of thousands of artifacts that collectively serve to sustain the history of the cryptologic profession. Originally designed to house artifacts from the Agency and to give employees a place to reflect on past successes and failures, the Museum quickly developed into a priceless collection of the Nation's cryptologic history.


The National Cryptologic Museum has had an adjunct reference library that maintains a collection of unclassified and declassified books and documents relating to every aspect of cryptology. The books and records complement the museum exhibits and artifacts, but also offer unique and in-depth sources of information for researchers. The library has a very large collection of commercial codebooks.


The NSA Civilian Welfare Fund Gift Shop, located within the National Cryptologic Museum, offers a variety of merchandise ranging from unique NSA logo items to books and videos relating to the art and science of cryptology.


Adjacent to the Museum, is the National Vigilance Park. The park showcases two reconnaissance aircraft used for secret missions. The park is not part of the tour but you are encouraged to explore it on your own.


The tour will start at 10:00 AM and will take approximately 90 minutes.


Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
