I only walked the campus so I can't attest to the museum or other indoor facilities. Definitely impressive place that you can sense many brilliant minds gather

Frank Gehry's Strata Center is something to see, but there are many other interesting buildings to see, courtyards to wonder and giant sculptures to appreciate on the M.I.T. campus.

The world centre of Technical excellence has quite a subdued, normal air about it, the walk along the river bank looking back to the city was very nice....

The Gehry building is bizarre and fun. If it's open, walk around inside. There's natural light shining all the way down to the bottom floor.
