Besides the presentation of the evaluation of language through various eras, the proposed museum would provide the visitors a chance to experience everything from cave paintings to modern literary work at one go there.

Exhibitions on divergent topics like the growth of the national co-operative movement, the linguistic diversity of the country, the chronology of various literary genres, rare literary works, post-modern Malayalam literature, the influence of Malayalam language in other places and the scientific methods of translation are also planned at the facility, it said.
