Installations and Collaborations

Explore big ideas in small spaces. Throughout the museum you’ll find small, focused installations about a single artist, scientist, or concept. Often developed in partnership with MIT students, faculty, and researchers, these installations draw on the MIT Museum’s vast collections of objects and archival materials.

The MIT Museum’s collections are at the core of all we do, from research and publications to public programs and exhibitions. Through more than one million objects, prints, rare books, technical archives, drawings, photographs, films, and holograms we’re able to share the wide interests of the MIT community from the Institute’s founding in 1861 to cutting-edge current research.
