MIT Libraries Attractions

Those interested in history and special collections are encouraged to visit the Maihaugen Gallery of MIT, which is the main exhibition space of the MIT Libraries.  The Maihaugen Gallery allows visitors to explore the institution’s extraordinary unique collections and special archives, which include pieces like historical documents, rare photographs and books, maps, and much more.

Visitors eager to learn more architecture and planning should consider visiting the exhibitions at MIT’s Rotch Library.  These exhibitions mainly focus on work of MIT students, staff, faculty, and alumni of the School of Architecture and Planning.  Thus, the exhibits highlight themes such as urban planning, architecture, globalization, environmental topics, and design.

Both the Maihaugen Gallery and the Rotch Library exhibitions are open during regular library hours.  For more information on the current hours and holdings, we encourage you to visit the website of the MIT Libraries Exhibitions. For more MIT sites click here!
