Bletchley Park has joined a prestigious group of heritage and art organisations by opening its first online exhibition at the Google Cultural Institute.

The Google Cultural Institute is dedicated to creating technology that helps the cultural community to bring their art, archives, heritage sites and other material online, including Anne Frank House, Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory and Yad Vashem.

The Bletchley Park exhibition at the Google Cultural Institute tells the the Codebreakers in World War Two, from the arrival of the first hand-picked few who responded to the coded message ‘Aunty Flo is not so well’, right through to its role in the success of the D Day deception in 1944.

It includes never-seen-before photographs and a unique peek inside the mysterious Bletchley Park Archive, at some of the messages decrypted against vast odds and amid conditions of utmost secrecy.
