  • I took the campus tour that was open to the public, and it was great. It was so exciting to be able to visit such an amazing institution. The architecture was amazing, as was the tour guide...

  • Lovely campus near Charles River. Took a uber to MIT from Wharf area. Many research buildings on this beautiful campus. If you are a student or not, it’s worth to visit, dream for architecture lovers.
  • 6/29/22 in town for a doctors appointment tomorrow . My husband and I decide to walk a little and found MIT . I really love the green space in the middle and the art work . I am seating on a bench right in front of the Biology building (where I am sure one of my acquaintances spent a lot time to get his PHD) . Quite and pleasant . ❤️
