Our mission is to inspire an appreciation for the magic and beauty of language.
Three major themes govern presentations, exhibits and programs:
Universal Aspects of Language
Language in Society
Languages of the World
We seek to lead others to their personal discoveries of language and languages.
To Educate and Inform
We undertake a range of initiatives offering “hands-on”, visual and audio exhibits, programs and presentations to educate, inform and entertain — the general public, school-age children and those with a deep or only a passing interest — on aspects of language, languages and language cultures.
A National Forum
The National Museum of Language brings together people from diverse language circles – academic, governmental, social, business, scientific, literary, technological – and provides a public forum through which they can focus attention on language as a human phenomenon and languages within broad cultural settings.
