The Foreign Press Center took a group of twenty-five foreign media from all world regions to the National Cryptologic Museum which is right outside the gates of the National Security Agency and is the Intelligence Community's only public museum.  Media learned about codes, code-breaking and intelligence tradecraft from WWII through the Cold War, interviewed the Museum Director and other subject matter experts, and filmed both the Museum itself and the intelligence-gathering aircraft displayed outside.
