We’re excited to share that Planet Word in Washington, DC officially opened its doors to the public on Thursday! Planet Word is a new, start-up museum with a mission of inspiring a love of words and language. The project features nine permanent galleries, each with their own voice-activated experience; a standalone, puzzle-solving gallery; a voice-activated 22-foot-high Word Wall; and a 5,000-LED globe with word games.
“I am so thrilled to open Planet Word’s doors to the public and cannot imagine a more fitting time for a museum of language to open in our nation’s capital. Democracy depends on literate citizens. I hope that Planet Word can provide a forum for civil discourse and a place where our community, in all its vibrant diversity, can gather to share the words that bridge differences and forge solutions.” Museum Founder & CEO Ann Friedman said in a statement.
