Capture of USS Pueblo recounted in exhibit at cryptology museum

August 27, 1998|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

Military spies, an enemy capture, hostages and intrigue -- the story of the USS Pueblo had it all.

Visitors to the National Cryptological Museum at Fort Meade can learn the story of how the Army supply ship outfitted to conduct a spy operation was captured outside North Korean territorial waters in 1968 and 82 members of its crew were imprisoned for 11 months. The story is told through the words of its officers and men, newspaper articles, photographs and artifacts.

The museum, off Baltimore-Washington Parkway at Route 32, is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sundays and federal holidays.
