Language is one of the fundamental abilities that makes us human. It has also played a key role in the evolution of people and modern society. To reveal the secrets of language, Mundolingua gives you the opportunity to discover language, languages...more
I am a big fan of languages, so I was quite excited to see the place. I gotta admit they were really creative to set up the place. Still I wouldn't consider it as a must-see. Maybe if you are with kids, they'd probably have...More
Wonderful way to spend a few hours in Paris if you're into language and linguistics.
This is not the average museum where you passively wander exhibits taking pictures and reading the attached cards. This feels more like a study session and in a very good...More
Good little place, but more of a place for kids (older kids) or people who want to learn more about language. I'm really into language so I went, but most stuff there I already knew. For me, really not a place to go in Paris,...More

This is a private initiative, a low-fi little place stuffed into two rooms and a vast basement in the university quarters of Paris. But it is incredibly well-researched, interestingly presented and illustrates language and languages from all conceivable angles. You might think this a pretty...More
I spent an interesting and enlightening 2 1/2 hours here and will return when next in Paris. Full of such interesting information and plenty of hands-on activities and exhibits. I had no idea how the Enigma Machine worked, the different methods of learning a second...More
A great little museum hidden in a beautiful part of Paris! The staff were most helpful and friendly upon arrival. Plenty of activities to do, which are all laid out in unique and interesting ways! Would definitely visit again and highly recommend!
