Yesterday, we mentioned the soon-to-open American Writers Museum in Chicago. As long as we’re on the subject, here’s another literary museum in the works: the Planet Word Museum, slated to open in Washington, D.C., in winter 2019. Planet Word’s goal is to “inspire and renew a love of words and language through unique, immersive learning experiences.”
To be housed in the historic Franklin School, at the corner of 13th and K streets in the heart of Washington, D.C., the museum will feature “activities that make words and language exciting with delightful programming and playful, interactive exhibits. Opportunities for self-expression and intense listening ensure that no one will leave Planet Word without finding the fun in how we joke, sing, speak, read, and write every day.”
Watch for updates on the Planet Word website.
