Planet Word — the World’s First Voice-Activated Museum!

<< More Events

Planet Word is the world’s first voice-activated museum, and it calls the DMV home!

Open since 2020, this language arts museum boasts interactive galleries and exhibits that bring words and language to life — each focuses on a different aspect of the spoken word with an emphasis on allowing visitors like you to speak, manipulate, and interact with concepts. This ranges from an elaborate interactive room-sized globe to playful poetry written on bathroom walls.

A unique feature beloved by all is the Speaking Willow — an interactive, motion-detecting tree sculpture that whispers to visitors in hundreds of different languages as they enter the museum! Click here to see more notable exhibits, including:

Joking Around

Unlock the Music
Be the star of the show! Choose an iconic song to sing karaoke-style and learn the techniques that help songwriters put together lyrics and create a hit.

Lend Me Your Ears
Friends, Romans, countrymen — it’s your turn to make your voice heard! Here you can deliver a famous speech using a teleprompter and discover what made it immortal.

Word Worlds
Paint with words! Dip your brush into verdant, surreal, or luminous and thrill as you transform the room around you with color, sound, and motion.

The Library
Enter a magical library where books come to life before your eyes! Find the hidden door to a serene poetry nook, and discover other secrets hidden in the stacks.
