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.
More than 25,000 object records from the Hart Nautical Collections are now available through the Museum’s online collections portal. Visitors interested in other Museum collections may continue to access them through our legacy collections database.
Thank you for your patience as we build an exceptional online experience for you.
