MIT Museum open daily this summer


Starting Monday, July 11, the MIT Museum will be open every day, offering families, tourists and others more time to explore its exhibits on science and technology, architecture and design, and oceanography and ship design.

Normally closed on Mondays, the museum will be open seven days a week through Aug. 29.

Exhibitions currently on view include "Mind and Hand: The Making of MIT Scientists and Engineers," an exploration of how an MIT education has changed through the years; "Robots and Beyond: Exploring Artificial Intelligence @ MIT," an interactive excursion into the world of artificial intelligence at MIT; "Holography: The Light Fantastic," an eye-popping display of works from the Institute's holography collection-the world's largest; "Gestural Engineering: The Sculpture of Arthur Ganson," ingenious, philosophical and witty kinetic sculptures once described as "Rube Goldberg meets Jean-Paul Sartre"; and "Flashes of Inspiration: The Work of Doc Edgerton," a multimedia celebration of the life and work of MIT legend Harold "Doc" Edgerton (1903-1991), the developer of the electronic strobe whose stop-motion photography is world famous.

In addition to these ongoing exhibits, "InvenTeams Showcase," a show of inventions made by high school teams participating in the Lemelson-MIT Program, is on view through Aug. 14.
