The MIT Museum has been the site of many special celebrations, exceptional dinners, memorable parties, lively receptions, fundraisers... and more. The Museum's exhibits and intimate gathering spaces provide a unique backdrop for events and ensure that guests are treated to an engaging evening with never a dull moment!

A variety of gallery spaces allow for a range of events—the Museum easily accommodates large or small parties with the exhibits serving as icebreakers, stimulating conversation and making a truly memorable event.

For example, a party works well starting with a cocktail hour in the 5000 Moving Parts gallery, followed by dinner in the Robots and Beyond gallery. Or try dining on the first floor—photos posted below show how gracious and welcoming the Innovation Gallery can become with just a few special touches. Larger parties can use the entire museum, with guests able to explore all the museum has to offer during the course of the event!

We welcome your questions and are happy to provide advice and consultation for using the galleries for your next event. Please call or e-mail for an appointment to tour the galleries with the Event Rentals Manager at 617.253.9889.
