MITAC: Your Ticket to Cultural and Recreational Activities

Leisure time with friends and family is precious, which is why the MIT Activities Committee (MITAC) is pleased to offer discounted tickets to cultural and recreational activities to Institute faculty and staff. 

Whether you are interested in movies, sports, seasonal activities, family activities, theater, or music, you can save time and money – and enjoy friendly customer service – thanks to MITAC, an employee benefit program. In addition to purchasing tickets for your own use, you also may buy them as gifts for family, friends, and colleagues.

MITAC offers a wide spectrum of more than 250 cultural and recreational events annually to our community. Regularly discounted tickets include those for:

  • Boston Celtics
  • Broadway Shows
  • Holiday Pops
  • Boston Symphony Orchestra
  • World Music
  • Local Attractions (Boston Children’s Museum, Museum of Science, New England Aquarium, and Peabody Essex Museum)
  • Blue Man Group
  • Special Family Events

Current event offerings include:

  • Boston Celtics – 13 games (including the LA Lakers), balcony and promenade seating, $47–$125/ticket
  • Holiday Pops, 3 performance options, December 8, 9, or 15, $38–$64/ticket
  • Jersey Boys, Sunday, February 24, 6:30 pm, $96/ticket

Launched as a pilot program in 1983 in Building 20, MITAC now serves more than 4,800 customers, saving MIT community members $170,000 annually. MITAC is guided by both a program committee and presidentially appointed Advisory Council, which provides guidance on long-term goals and planning, business practices, and policies.
