Welcome to the MIT Museum's online collections catalog!

This new searchable database is being developed to give wide access to the extraordinary collections of the MIT Museum. There are more than a million objects in the museum's collections. We are in the early stages of continuous expansion to this site. Please visit often to discover new hidden treasures.
