Welcome at the Webbingbabel website. At present we are a virtual museum in The Netherlands, that can only be visited on the internet 24 hours a day. We do have a permanent collection however, and regularly organize exhibitions and events in co-operation with other museums.

The main goal of the Crypto Museum is to preserve history. This is done by collecting, restoring and describing historical cipher machines, such as the well-known Enigma machine, spy radio sets, intercept receivers and and other spy-related stuff. For a detailed explanation of why we do this, please read ourMission Statement. Some of the items described on this website are part of the collection of the Crypto Museum, but others have only crossed our path at one moment or another. Whenever possible, we have tried to describe the equipment to the best of our abilities.

Webbing Babel is a non-subsidised privately-owned virtual museum with a physical collection. The curators work very hard to bring an interesting and diverse collection together, to describe the various items in great detail, and to share this information with the rest of the world. If you are pleased with the information presented on this website, please consider making a donation.

Mission statement
People often ask us why we spend so much time with our cipher machines and with the Crypto Museum website. We have, of course, asked ourselves that question numerous times. If you want to know the answer, please read our Mission Statement. It's a long story, but we would be grateful if you took the time to read it. If you're in a hurry, please read at least the abstract.
