  1. What are the gallery hours? Is there an admission charge? Are there curators available to share information about the languages in the exhibit? I’d love to come check it out!

    • The exhibit is open every day except Monday and Tuesday. The hours are noon to 6:00 pm. There will always be a curator available but not necessarily the linguist-curator. Any unanswered questions you may have about the show can always be directed here 🙂
