about MIT Museum:
Multimedia exhibitions and programs explore both the foundations and the frontiers of science, and give museum visitors a window on technological innovation they won't find anywhere else. The MIT Museum is the only attraction dedicated to science and technology innovations in the city of Cambridge, and recently opened the new 5,000 sq. ft. Mark Epstein Innovation Gallery.
Learn about robots and artificial intelligence, see amazing holograms, follow the making of MIT scientists and engineers, catch the time-stopping beauty of strobe photography, discover the art in architecture, journey with leading edge oceanographers, even thrill to a roomful of ingenious kinetic sculptures. The Museum features changing and ongoing exhibits, unique hands-on experiences, and community programs for visitors of all ages. The Museum also presents the annual Cambridge Science Festival in late April and hosts a huge variety of events, demonstrations, and activities for all ages during that time period.
There is a small specialty museum store on site with fun gifts, games, puzzles, books, and t-shirts relating to engineering and the MIT experience. Take a look at the website for an in-depth introduction to the museum [web.mit.edu/museum.
