Discover objects, personal stories and enjoy thrilling moments of interaction as you explore The Intelligence Factory. The exhibition focuses on Bletchley Park during wartime operations from 1942 to 1945. Explore a key part of the Bletchley Park story and how it operated at an industrial scale to meet operational demands, with a multi-skilled workforce of around 9,000.
During the second half of World War Two, Bletchley Park rapidly increased its multi-skilled workforce to meet operational demands. The site expanded hugely to a workforce of 9,000, 75% of whom were women. Staff worked around the clock to supply an ever-growing demand for signals intelligence. They converted a mountain of enemy communications into actionable intelligence that would ultimately help win the war.
Find out how Bletchley Park operated during this critical time when the outcome of World War Two hung in the balance.
The Intelligence Factory, will be the largest exhibition space on site. Situated in Block A which is newly refurbished and was previously not open to the public.
