This is a much different, but equally important experience to Harvard. Absolutely spectatcular modern architecture and grounds. Visit the MIT Coop for cool souvineers.

It's a surprisingly small campus for such a renowned school but I enjoyed the diversion of a walk around. Nice book store where I found some European magazines you would have difficulty finding elsewhere. I liked the idea that I could be standing next to a Nobel laureate but besides that it's basically just another campus.

Its a long walk from one place to the next. Some streets were blocked because of repairs so that makes your routes even longer. Nothing much to do here.

The MIT buildings are well worth visiting, and the MIT Science Museum is very interesting, with plenty to inform and entertain, irrespective of age. There is an exhibition of Daguerrotypes in the museum for the rest of the 2014 - worth a visit.

What's not to like? Great architecture, sailing boat house on the Charles, phenomenal Library, music concerts, lectures..or just sitting on a bench and watching the next generation of MIT students.
