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.
Almost 17,000 object records from the Haffenreffer-Herreshoff nautical collection are now available on the beta site of the Museum’s online collections portal. We invite you to explore the site and give us your feedback. With your help, we will continue to improve the portal and look forward to a full launch in June 2019 when artifacts from all of our collections will be available.
Thank you for your patience as we build an exceptional online experience for you.
