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
