  • Among the many unique museums in Vienna you can count this little esperanto Museum, housed in the National Library and can be visited along with the equally original globe Museum. I basically agree with those who wrote that esperanto, although it is considered a failed experiment, it should at least be known to stimulate reflection on the current linguistic Anglo-Saxon colonisation that in times not too long will eventually make extinguish dozens of languages. Esperanto was intended to be a neutral communication tool, easy for everyone, but that requires a minimal effort of learning at all; However, I honestly must say that it is a language designed to be easy to Europeans or to those who speak European languages, certainly not to the Arabs or the Chinese (the rest was invented at a time when Europe's cultural primacy was not usually questioned). Beyond that, the Museum could be much more attractive: the collection is very small, the media are missing (very useful when you want to illustrate of languages), and also lack books you can browse freely, something that wouldn't be out of place in a museum than a library.

There are also objects that refer to the language, as well as books and grammars. All in all a bit pointless as a Museum-in my opinion-
