It's enjoyable and educational, but once is enough.

What You'll Get


Scholars gain respect among their peers through publishing in academic journals, discovering formulas, and head-butting horn-rimmed glasses. See the results of their scholarly efforts with today's Groupon to the MIT Museum in Cambridge. Choose between the following options:

  • For $8, you get general admission for two (up to a $17 value).
  • For $12, you get general admission for four (up to a $34 value).

The MIT Museum, accredited by the American Association of Museums in 1984 and again in 2002, engages the public with scientific research, design, and a peek into the institution's academic discoveries. The museum's permanent collections, assembled from artifacts the university has collected through scholarly interests, include holograms, a nautical archive, and technological achievements, such as the telephone. Temporary exhibitions storm the museum's towers throughout the year, currently showcasing MIT 150, highlighting 150 years' worth of artifacts–such as race cars and the TX-0 computer–and world domination by MIT students and faculty. The museum also hosts a number of programs for the public throughout the year. Guests can check out the calendar for an up-to-date list of upcoming attractions and events.

The MIT Museum's admission fees fluctuate throughout the week. Seniors, students, and those younger than 18 receive discounted admission.
