Very interesting and great exhibits, but expensive for a family to go

I enjoyed everything about the museum except the price. Way too much for an afternoon with the kids.

Life changing experience. The campus gives lot of energy. It's fascinating to see the work of Nobel laureates and learn about their teaching skills. Impressive reading hall. Campus is an integral part of the Boston and merges seamlessly with city. Inspiring stories. We had wonderful experience. Thanks to Chintan

We had a personalized insider's tour of the campus so we had a chance to see the inside of many buildings and hear some details that you would never get on your own. Some pretty interesting architecture and some cool labs. Not sure if MIT has a public tour but if they do I would take it.

The endowments that have funded MI T are interesting. The campus is city size by UK standards and the sports facilities are excellent. It's sprawling and an interesting area to explore. Great place for a conference although education as a big corporate...

Didn't thought that the MIT would be that great. I just fell in love with it. They do have their own hairdresser and a lot of different food places. The Shop is really big,too. Just love it!

Inspirational! Professional MIT tours are highly recommended due to the wealth of information. It can still be explored on your own, but a bunch of attractions may not be accessible.

If you can find a parking space on Mass Ave, take it, and have a look around the campus. Better yet, if you can take in a seminar or other event at MIT, take advantage of it, because this is the hub of innovative thinking!

While not large in the State University sense, this remarkable school is an dynamic and exciting place that cane seen cold an apart. At the undergrad level closer circles of friends and departments can evolve, but is hard to see as a visitor. At the graduate and professional level, the place is much more accessible and courteous.
