Top Secret: from ciphers to cyber securityA fantastic free exhibition in the dimly lit bowels of the Science Museum, Top Secret explores over a century's worth of communications intelligence, exhibiting hand-written documents, declassified files and previously unseen artefacts. Among over 100 objects are an Enigma machine, a mock up of the Krogers' 1960's house - the unlikely couple who were part of the most successful Soviet spy ring in Cold War Britain - and declassified files from GCHQ. An interactive puzzle zone gives you the chance to test your own codebreaking skills and you'll be able to see the people and technologies keeping us safe from the very real modern day threat of cyber security attacks.
