09 February 2019 - 02 June 2019

Since the dawn of time, people have had secrets they wish to hide…and share.

Delve in to the mysterious world of covert communications in our new FREE exhibition opening on 9 February 2019.

‘Cracked!’ will take you on a journey, starting with the earliest examples of codes and ciphers, going on to look at methods of secret communication used during war times then exploring how modern technology uses code to allow us to communicate safely today.

Try your hand at cracking a secret code using our Caesar Wheel, communicate a message to your friends using Flag Semaphore at our very own Code Station, and discover the ciphers and codes that have remained unsolved for years and are still a mystery to even the sharpest of cryptologists!
