The MIT Museum, which is the only museum on MIT’s campus, is an inspiring visual story of non-stop genius, creativity and innovation.

History of the Museum

The museum was established in 1971 as the “MIT Historical Collections” in order to collect and preserve artifacts that were historically significant to the MIT community.

Later, the museum started to offer exhibits and programs to both the MIT community and the general public, and became known as the “MIT Museum.”
