More than one million objects, prints, rare books, technical archives, drawings, photographs, films, and holograms
The MIT Museum’s galleries, exhibitions, demos, workshops, performances, conversations, and debates invite visitors to participate in the ongoing adventure of research and innovation. The Museum displays objects from it vast collection, and features rotating exhibitions on a wide range of STEAM-based topics. The Museum also presents regular programs, events, and festivals including guided gallery tours, demonstrations by MIT faculty and students, workshops in its educational classroom, hands-on activities in its Idea Hub, and the annual Cambridge Science Festival.
The MIT Museum engages the wider community with MIT’s science, technology, and other areas of scholarship in ways that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.
The MIT Museum fulfills this mission by collecting and preserving objects that are significant in the life of MIT; creating exhibits and programs that are firmly rooted in MIT’s areas of endeavor; and engaging MIT faculty, staff, and students with the wider community.
The Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting materials that serve as a resource for the study and interpretation of the intellectual, educational, and social history of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and its role in the development of modern science and technology. The Museum stands alone among university museums in its focus on the impact on society of the research, the teaching, and the scientific innovations of its parent institution.
The MIT Museum’s collections are at the core of all we do, from research and publications to public programs and exhibitions. Through more than one million objects, prints, rare books, technical archives, drawings, photographs, films, and holograms we’re able to share the wide interests of the MIT community from the Institute’s founding in 1861 to cutting-edge current research.
More than 25,000 object records from the Hart Nautical Collections are now available through the Museum’s online collections portal. Visitors interested in other Museum collections may continue to access them through our legacy collections database.
