Lovers of languages and linguistics will want to check out Mundolingua, the unusual museum of languages, language and linguistics. An opportunity to learn all about the world's languages.

Want to know all about the world's languages? Let's head for Mundolingua, the unusual museum of languages, language and linguistics located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. This curious museum invites you to discover the different ways in which mankind communicates, and how languages are constructed.

How do we make sounds? What is the origin of the Tower of Babel? Why is the Basque language so difficult to learn? These are just some of the questions to which the museum provides answers, so you can learn all you need to know about languages and linguistics. The idea? To"desacralize linguistics and raise public awareness of "linguadiversity", through games and interactive spaces".

A total of 170m2 of space awaits you! The first area of the museum invites visitors to discover how human sounds are made, and the place of language among other modes of communication, before moving on to"the history and geography of languages".

Among the museum's treasures are a replica of the Rosetta Stone (the real thing is on display at the British Museum in London), a reproduction of one of the Dead Sea Scrolls and one of the world's very first published dictionaries. Cryptography enthusiasts are not left out, as a real Enigma machine is also on display.

An opportunity to learn more about languages and other communication systems!
