About Crypto Museum
Crypto Museum is based in The Netherlands and is an initiative of Paul Reuvers and Marc Simons who are also the creators of the Enigma-E, a self-build Electronic version of the Enigma machine. It is our goal to preserve the history and technology of historical equipment, as described in our Mission Statement. At the moment, Crypto Museum is a virtual museum with a real collection.

On this website we have gathered information about cipher machines, spy radio sets, intercept equipment, TSCM, covert equipment (bugs, microphones, covert radios, cameras, recorders, etc.) and burst encoders. In the future we hope to be able to offer facilities to allow a real-life visit.

We actively co-operate with other museums, in order to promote and preserve the history of cryptology. As an example, we helped organizing the exhibition Secret Messages at Museum Jan Corver in The Netherlands between October 2008 and February 2009. That exhibition was a huge success, but has now ended. We also took part in the large crypto exhibition held at Bletchley Park during the Enigma Reunion 2009, and at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2010.

 Overview of the events

Contacting us
At the moment, Crypto Museum is just a virtual museum with limited visiting capabilities. This is why we do not have a visiting address. However, you can find us frequently at other museums, mini-ehibitions and public events (see below). We can be contacted at the e-mail address below:

We are always interested in acquiring new equipment in order to extend the collection. If you have anything to offer, please do not hestitate to contact us.

In order to promote the history of Enigma and other cipher machines, we regularly give talks on Enigma and related subjects. If you are interested in one of our presentations, please check this page.

Crypto Museum is a non-subsidised privately-owned virtual museum. The curators work very hard to bring an interesting and diverse collection together, to describe the various items in great detail, and to share this information with the rest of the world.
