Meet MIT

Some of the world's most cutting-edge technology research and development takes place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You don't have to be a student there to learn about some of what's going down in these illustrious labs: Just swing by the MIT Museum, a real campus highlight.

Permanent holdings--including the highly regarded (and very-much-Boston-appropriate) Francis Russell Hart Nautical Collections, some highlights of which you can see at the Hart Nautical Gallery over in MIT Building 5--and an ever-changing lineup of special exhibits cover a lot of territory, from robots and lasers to historical exposes on influential MIT projects. The Museum's open year-round save for major holidays, so make it part of your self-guided MIT tour whenever you're here.
