The Museum will soon be have an Enigma on exhibit.  A what you say?  The Enigma was first created and brought to market in Germany in 1918 as a way for companies to send sensitive information.  Soon after, it was put into use by Germany to hide secrets from the Allies.  The complexity of Enigma forced Britain and the United States to create better and faster ways to crack the Enigma code and gain access to the Nazi Germany’s secrets.  The machines and techniques devised to crack Enigma ushered in the modern computer age.
