Ranging from formal to informal, the MIT Museum hosts a wide variety of evening programs for adults, about an even wider variety of research topics.

Soap Box
Soap Box is a series of interactive, salon-style, early evening conversations with scientists and engineers who are making the news that really matters. Participants of all backgrounds converse with top MIT scientists or engineers in an informal cafe-style setting at the MIT Museum. Begun in 2005, Soap Box is the premier public forum for discussing new technological and scientific developments at MIT.

TalkBack 360
TalkBack 360 is a discussion series at the MIT Museum where audiences and researchers come together to share their diverse perspectives on hot topics in science, technology, and the arts. Join the discussion in our MIT 360 arena and talk back about the research that keeps you thinking.
