German Enigma Cipher Machine

National Cryptological Museum

It looks ancient. Does it encode ciphers or something? Like during WW2?

Exactly. This machine was used in WWII to communicate information between the German High Command and field operations. It was so much more complex than other enciphering machines that it took a whole division of Allied specialists (Bletchley Park) years to solve it. Polish mathematicians led the way.
