If you have never seen MIT before, or saw it a long time ago, it is worth visiting. The architecture is amazing and the place is humming with activity. There are several museums and art exhibits in addition to the MIT Museum which is down toward Central Square.

amazing walk in the corridors of such great institution. Breathing there gives you the feeling that if you really have the chance of studying there, then well, you can really get something additional compared to the other universities in the world! :)

My daughter and I took the admissions tour. We were both very impressed with how student-centered they are.It is also a peaceful island in a bustling urban area.

Been there for campus visit. Nice one and people are more friendly as compare with their Ivy neighbor. As in most part of Cambridge, it's hard to find parking so make sure to compare parking lot online before you get there

Excellent place to visit to see the architecture of the Mit and see brilliant minds. Check out the bridge which is near by, which crosses from Cambridge side to Boston. Indian food near by is awesome and cheap buffet option available. I found evening to late night is good to see the city in summary. Looking for drinks? Make sure... More

Was in the area and stopped by. Interesting, but not worth a special trip. Lots of more interesting things in the area

Between Harvard and Boston, it is located this magnificent University, you can go inside and take a look of its installation. And just in front of the MIT you will find a spectacular view of the Charles River.
