Bletchley Park

Welcome to Cryptotourism, a tourism guide for cryptography and its history. When complete, this guide should be able to answer question such as:

  1. I'm going on a business trip to Chicago; while I'm there, are there any places of interest with regards to cryptography?
  2. 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.

Draft policies

National-cryptologic-museum

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.
  • General information about a location (how to get there, opening times, prices, etc.)
  • Photographs of the various locations

Things to exclude:

  • Detailed information about cryptography or its history; this is better handled by Wikipedia. To introduce an article a couple of sentences about a machine, event or location should suffice.
  • Detailed guides to places or museums outside of the scope of cryptography; this is better handled by Wikitravel.
