Founded in 1927, the Esperanto museum is dedicated to the power of language and its importance in the life of human beings. With the help of interactive media technology, the visitors can get to know about Esperanto, an international auxiliary language devised in 1887 by Dr. Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof (1859-1917). Apart from that, you can also get to know of other planned languages such as the mystical Lingua Ignota of Hildegard of Bingen or Klingon from the television series Star Trek. This museum will be of special interest to children as they come to know of the rules of grammar and other factors that contribute to language.

  • Great way to kill an hour. Ticket is very cheap and includes access to the Globe Museum and Papyrus Museum as well. Lovely little insight into the world of created languages, obviously with a focus on Esperanto. It'd be nice to see more resources available for those interested in studying the language but for such a small museum it's not a surprise they don't have any kind of shop. Expect to have the place to yourself, maybe a couple of others at worst.

  • Great place if you are interested in learning more about languages and particularly about Esperanto, an interesting project that won't let you indifferent. Besides, it is dynamic and interactive and 30 minutes are more than enough to visit it and become an amateur and potential esperantist.

  • Interesting but very small. Great to combine with the globe museum upstairs - the ticket is inexpensive and you get access to both.

  • Small museum on the history of planned languages like Esperanto. Good if you are interested in the subject and in case you have one hour to spare and you are in the area. For star trek fans the museum also reference the Klingon language.

  • Fantastic and interactive little display about this fascinating aspect of linguistic history. We entered as part of the 4€ combi-ticket.
