It is going to be 51,000 square feet and it will have many different exhibits. The museum is designed to educate people on the different languages from around the world. There will be eleven galleries, and they will focus on the written, spoken, and even sung words. The experiences within the galleries will be immersive, and one actually has karaoke. Imagine how fun that one will be. You’ll even be able to recite famous speeches, such as Martin Luther King Jr’s I Have a Dream speech. There will also be a 22 foot long word wall with over 1,000 activated words that will light up and tell stories about their journey within the English language.

There will also be a section where people can use small brushes to paint a scene that will change the virtual landscape of the exhibit. How exciting is that? This museum will definitely be the place to visit when you go to DC. It’s exciting, new, and different, and an experience you don’t want to miss out on.
The Museum will open its doors on May 31, 2020.
