Loan Policies

Our upcoming move to Kendall Square has required the museum collections to temporarily close in order to prepare for the relocation of reference services to the new location.

During this interim, projected until the fall of 2022, loan requests will not be available. Exceptions may be possible for MIT projects; MIT students, faculty, and staff can contact collections staff with this form.

Beginning with the opening of our new Kendall facility on October 2, 2022, outgoing loan requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and will be approved at the discretion of the appropriate curator, with final approval from the director. Requests can be submitted to MIT Museum staff with this form.
