Welcome to Cryptotourism, a tourism guide for cryptography and its history. When complete, this guide should be able to answer question such as:
- I'm going on a business trip to Chicago; while I'm there, are there any places of interest with regards to cryptography?
- Where can I go to view an Enigma machine?
Currently, this wiki has not been publicised, although if you've stumbled across it, feel free to contribute. After I've done a little work seeding the wiki with a few basic articles and structure, I'll (User:Matt Crypto) publicise the Wiki to a few groups and people.
- See Category:Cryptotourism for a list of all articles
Things to include:
- Articles on museums which either focus on cryptography (e.g. National Cryptologic Museum, Bletchley Park) or which include items of interest in cryptography, e.g. Smithsonian, British Science Museum.
- Locations of interest to cryptography; perhaps things like the birthplace of Alan Turing, memorials to cryptographers, current and past headquarters of crypto agencies, undeciphered enscriptions, and so on.
- Some general information about a location (how to get there, opening times, prices, etc.)
- More specific information about the cryptographic aspects of a location.
- Photographs of the various locations.
- "Index articles" — for example, an Enigma article should list locations of viewable Enigma machines; the United Kingdom article should list all the interesting locations within the UK, and so forth.
Things to exclude:
- Detailed information about cryptography or its history; this is better handled by Wikipedia. At the start of an article, a couple of sentences introducing the topic should suffice.
- Guides to places or museums outside of the scope of cryptography; this is better handled by Wikitravel.
- If available, a link to appropriate Wikipedia or WikiTravel articles should be provided after the headword; such as: "United Kingdom (Wikipedia) (Wikitravel)..."
- Avoid subjective evaluation or reviews
