Museum of World War II

The museum abruptly shuttered on Labor Day weekend amid a dispute about the relocation of its unequaled artifacts. The collection may move to Washington, D.C., but nothing is certain at present.

Museum of World War II

Museum tucked away on outskirts of Boston (about 25 minutes) that holds one of the largest collection of international WWII artifacts in the world. Takes a sociological view of the war by representing perspectives from every country that participated in the war. You get to touch most of the artifacts (which is really cool). And they are about to undergo a massive expansion, while keeping the old museum functioning, too.

The museum has nine -- count 'em -- German Enigma code machines, including two that visitors can use to encrypt and decrypt their own messages.
