Viestimuseossa Riihimäellä, http://www.viestikiltojenliitto.fi/viestimuseo/ on maaliskuun loppuun WWII radiotiedustelua esittelevä erikoisnäyttely, josta voi löytyä ammennettavaa myös tämän päivän tietoturvatekniikoiden parissa työskenteleville. Koska OWASP:in tiimoilta löytyi kiinnostusta lähteä tutustumaan ko. näyttelyyn, museolle on varattu opastettu kierros maaliskuun viimeiselle sunnuntaille su 29.3.2009 klo 13:00 eli kokoontuminen museolla ko. aikaan.

Museo ja näyttely ovat auki myös muina aikoina, joten jos tämä aika ei käy, paikalla voi toki käydä muulloinkin.

Tarkemmat ajo-ohjeet ja yhteystiedot löytyvät museon kotisivuilta, http://www.viestikiltojenliitto.fi/viestimuseo/yhteystiedot.html

Museo sijaitsee Viestirykmentin vieressä, mutta varsinaisen varuskunta-alueen ulkopuolella, joten museokäynti ei vaadi kulkulupia alueelle.

Paikalle innostuvat hoitavat oman logistiikkaratkaisunsa & sisäänpääsymaksunsa.
