Our Mission

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.
