Discover the weird and wonderful world of languages!

The UK has a museum for dog collars and lawn mowers, but not for languages. MEITS has launched an innovative Pop-Up World of Languages to fill this gap.

Take a journey through the three zones:

  • Languages and me
  • Languages around me
  • Languages in the world

Uncover the hidden treasures of languages through family-friendly, hands-on activities and games.

Events are taking place in Cambridge, Belfast, Edinburgh, Nottingham & London. Visit the website for more information and the full schedule of dates.
