Our outreach, education, and conservation activities emphasize on-line and on-site technologies, both in the Museum Hall and with traveling exhibits to local schools,libraries and other venues, primarily where young audiences may congregate. The National Museum of Language (NML) opened its doors in May of 2008, sustained by a nearly all-volunteer governing board and roster of docents. The NML has reached out to and collaborated with numerous national, regional and local organizations and supporters similarly devoted to language education, appreciation and public recognition and support. These activities include permanent and rotating exhibits at the current College Park location, traveling and loan exhibits to various local and regional “high impact” venues, and a regularly scheduled speaker series featuring experts on diverse topics in language, culture, and language science.
