About Us

Planet Word (www.planetwordmuseum.org) is a brand-new museum in Washington, D.C. Built on an idea rather than a collection of objects, it’s an interactive museum that brings language to life with unique, immersive experiences for people of all ages. Established by philanthropist and educator Ann Friedman, the museum is housed in the Franklin School, a newly restored and rehabilitated National Historic Landmark at the corner of 13th and K Streets, NW, in the heart of downtown. The building has undergone an extensive interior restoration, and the museum has installed architecturally significant large-scale, high-tech, and media-intensive exhibits and installations. The museum opened to visitors in October 2020 during the global health pandemic and operates a growing portfolio of online public and education programming. We are still at the early stages of growth and development as an organization, working to maximize the enormous potential of the exhibit content and experiences that have been created. We anticipate annual visitorship to the museum of 150,000 people.
