Attendance on our Exploration Field Trips is open to anyone who is a current member of the Rockville Science Center.
The December Explorations trip is to the National Cryptologic Museum. This special trip will include a guided tour especially for our scientifically minded members.
The National Cryptologic Museum collection contains thousands of artifacts, including numerous working World War II German Enigma machines and a Navy Bombe used to break it. Displays discuss the history of American cryptology and the people, machines, techniques, and locations concerned. Initially housing NSA artifacts for viewing by employees, the museum quickly developed into a collection of U.S. cryptologic history, with some artifacts dating back to pre-American Revolutionary War times.
We will meet at the museum’s entrance at 10 am. A museum docent will give our group an extended tour with back stories not usually given about exhibits.
Please check a map. There is more than on way to go to the museum.
Take MD 295 North (Balto/Wash Pkwy) OR I-95 North to Rt. 32 East/Ft Meade. Exit onto Canine Road. Turn left at the light onto Colony Seven Road. Follow past the aircraft and Shell station into Museum parking lot.
