Planet Word is a new, interaction-first museum exploring the way language shapes the human experience. Housed inside a National Historic Landmarks, the museum features wonders like a smart paintbrush that lets visitors "paint with words" and voice recognition experience allowing visitors to come face to face with 30 native speakers and signers, rendering the unique characteristics of their languages unforgettable. One of the most spectacular experiences in the museum uses a projection-mapped sculpture of 1000 words to tell the story of English as a continually evolving lexicon, shifting and growing as it encounters and embraces the world.
