This book aspires not only to be useful for museums, but also to serve all those readers interested in communication, in its broadest sense. In this text, a fascinating form of expression is pointed out: the museographic language, which has a series of native and specific communication resources, and constitutes a proper  language in its own right: necessary and fully fledged.This is not a finished book, but it humbly aims to open paths, inspiring reflections and development in relation to a language that is still in its infancy despite appearances. The museographic language still has an immense journey ahead of it, a journey that will even transcend museums themselves and become available to all kinds of communicative purposes.
