MIT Museum opens new exhibits for summer
June 12, 2010
The MIT Museum has opened new exhibits for the summer — with one focusing on the collection of Polaroid artifacts recently donated to the Museum.
The diverse and fascinating Polaroid collection reflects the inventiveness that defined American corporate innovation throughout the 20th century. The small display, which opened June 11, will contain about two dozen objects from this exciting collection donated by PLR IP Holding, LLC.
Opened on June 4, The Humorous Side of MIT: Poster Art by Donald J. Hatfield, 1950 – 1960 also joins the Museum's exhibition list; and, as part of the Sampling MIT collection, Fighting Malaria: Understanding the Biomechanical Properties of Red Blood Cells showcases research led by Subra Suresh, dean of the School of Engineering.
The MIT Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Admission is $7.50 for adults; $3 for guests under 18, students and seniors; and free for children under five or those with an MIT ID.
