Mission Statement

Mission Statement

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

Vision Statement:

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.
