WHAT IS PLANET WORD DOING TO KEEP VISITORS SAFE DURING COVID-19?
We are limiting capacity in the building to support social distancing, distributing stylus pens to limit touch interactions with our exhibit screens, and requiring masks be worn at all times on the premises. Learn more
DO I HAVE TO RESERVE A PASS IN ADVANCE?
To ensure we comply with COVID-19 safety protocols, we are limiting the number of free passes available daily. Reserving your pass online will ensure you get the day and time of your choice. We will have a limited number of passes available for walkups on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend a donation of $15 per person to support the museum.
WHY IS THERE A SUGGESTED DONATION?
As a non-profit organization that receives no federal funding, we rely on donations to support our mission: to inspire and renew a love of words, language, and reading. Your suggested donation helps support our mission-driven programs, exhibits, and educational outreach.
I RESERVED A FREE PASS BUT CAN’T MAKE IT TODAY — CAN I USE IT TOMORROW?
No problem! We understand that plans change. If you missed the day on your ticket, feel free to reserve another free pass or join the walk-up line, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
ARE STROLLERS ALLOWED IN THE MUSEUM?
We encourage everyone to park their strollers in a designated area on the first floor; ask a staff member to direct you to the stroller parking.
DOES THE MUSEUM HAVE WIFI?
Free WiFi provided by AT&T is available throughout the building. Ask a staff member if you need help connecting.
Share your visit by checking in on Facebook or tagging @PlanetWordDC on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
CAN I TAKE PICTURES IN THE MUSEUM?
Yes. We love photos, and yours are welcome and encouraged. Tag your photos with @PlanetWordDC — we want to see them, too!
