The NSA / National Cryptographic Museum is a wonderful source of information on the Enigma, Ultra, and the history of Coding and Decoding messages. The displays are frequently updated and expanded and human and electronically guided tours are available. The Archives consist of a very extensive library of original documents and books. The museum is open daily and the website provides more information: http://www.nsa.gov/museum/index.cfm

The Bletchley Park Museum is another wonderful source of information on the Enigma and Ultra. It is the place where most of the interception and decoding of messages took place during WW-2. Ongoing work includes expanding the exhibits and the reconstruction of the cryptologic bomb. The website provides much more information: http://www.bletchleypark.co.uk

The British Public Records Office now called the British National Archives contains many documents related to the Enigma which have recently been declassified. These include many intercepted messages. Although some documents have not been scanned yet, many are available on their website at: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/militaryhistory/ They also have downolad services available.
