Mundolingua Museum of Languages (Mundolingua Musée des Langues)

10 Rue Servandoni, Paris, 75006

The Basics

A replica of the Rosetta Stone, sound systems, and colorful maps and globes are just some of the treasures you’ll find inside this hidden gem located down a cobblestone street not far from Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg). Upon entry, visitors are given an introduction to the museum, either in English or French, and provided with a pair of headphones to listen to videos and audio clips. And for those looking for a more in-depth visit, you can also book to join a guided tour.

How to Get There

Mundolingua is located on rue Servandoni in the swanky 6th Arrondissement of Paris, just north of the sprawling Luxembourg Gardens. It's well served by public transit: The Odéon, Mabillon, Saint Sulpice, and Sèvres-Babylone metro stations and the Luxembourg RER station are all within a short walk.

When to Get There

The museum is open daily from midmorning to evening, including on Christmas and New Year’s Day. A number of workshops, conferences, lectures, and other special events (including the occasional game night) are held here throughout the year, though in most cases, participating will require a working knowledge of French.

Language and Technology

Arguably one of the most interesting parts of the museum is the New Technology and Linguistics section in the basement. Here visitors can learn about topics such as computer languages and voice-recognition software and even check out not-so-new language devices, including a telex, a microfiche reader, and a typewriter with phonetic-alphabet keyboard.
