A Vision for the Future--A Vision for Today

The mission of The National Museum of Language is to enhance understanding of all aspects of language in history, contemporary affairs, and the future.

By fostering the study of the nature of language, its development, and its role and importance in society, and by exploring linguistic problems and ways of overcoming them, the Museum will serve as a resource for people in all walks of life, and will contribute to better understanding and communication among individuals and among the peoples of the world.

The National Museum of Language will establish collections of research materials relating to language in a variety of fields and develop programs and exhibits to explore language in society and its essential role in the histories of civilizations and cultures.

Resident and traveling programs will address audiences of all ages and include the linguistic heritage of America and the nature and the role of language throughout the world.

The Museum will promote and conduct research in language and linguistics and will cooperate with other organizations, institutions, and individuals to achieve mutually agreed upon goals.
