On Thursday, March 19th, Computer Museum of America (CMoA) is unveiling one of the most historically significant artifacts to ever go on display at the museum, the Enigma machine. Considered the “unbreakable” decryption device by the Germans, the code was cracked by Alan Turing and a young group of Brits as portrayed in the movie, The Imitation Game. But there is so much more to the story!
We’re excited to have Dr. Kristie Macrackis, author, historian and professor at Georgia Tech deliver a keynote address during this special event. Her work focuses on the intersection of espionage history and the history of technology. After the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to slip on a white glove and use the machine before it takes its place under a secure plexiglass column. You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
The evening will begin at 6:00pm with light appetizers and tours around the museum. A cash bar is also available.
Advance tickets for this event are $15 for members and $25 for non-members. Tickets purchased at the door will be $30. 21+ event
