I've been to the MIT Museum on multiple occasions, and always find something new to be fascinated with. But the best exhibit is the odd mechanical robots, some of which are interactive, all of which are a little creepy.

I expected a lot from the MIT museum. In real it was one one floor and quiet smaller than assumed. On the other hand the things exposed are interesting: holograms, high speed cameras, intelligent machines. All together it is worth a visit.

$10 entrance free good value (personally, I expected it to be more). Very much enjoyed the robotics and hologram exhibits. It's quite a small place and, unless you read all the info for the exhibits, you're probably in and out in under 30 minutes easily....More

Studying at MIT was an amazing experience. The museum is a perfect summary of the past, present and future for all this crazy group of people that enjoy with engineering

Small one but has good collection of MIT invented items and themes. Holograms are nicely explained so is robotics. But could be much bigger considering the might of MIT. The MIT area also nice to walk around - we took our daughter around for some...More

We enjoyed it with kids! They loved leaning about the technology behind many inventions. Holograms were the most fun! Was well worth a visit!

Wonderful museum with great exhibits. The upstairs exhibit that features a mix of art and mechanics was excellent. Our visit was during the Cambridge science festival and there were several groups of MIT students sharing their research projects. It was fascinating.

We had fun exploring the evolution of robots produced by this institution. Also really enjoyed the hands-on components.

I rated as very good in the sense of very good for students and children. For a person who has more in-depth knowledge of technology etc. this will not be something 'wows' them (especially when you consider the admission fee). It has some 'cool' displays...More

I will have a group of super smart high school math whizzes - we can tour either this museum or the Museum of Sciences. Which would be more interesting to older high school kids interested in math?

I teach 9th grade physical science/earth science and geometry. This museum is geared for younger students. The hands on activities were fun but again 6th graders would be a more appropriate audience.
