Contact the MIT Museum Collections Department:

Our upcoming move to Kendall Square has required the museum collections to temporarily close in order to prepare for the relocation of reference services to the new location.

During this interim, projected until the fall of 2022, loan requests, image and film reproduction requests, research requests and visits, and class instruction with collections will not be available. Exceptions may be possible for MIT projects; MIT students, faculty, and staff can contact collections staff with this form.

During the collections closure, we are accepting limited object donations; please complete the Donation Offer form to contact our staff.

Beginning with the opening of our new Kendall facility on October 2, 2022, we will provide access to most fully digitized collections materials for all researchers, but in-person consultation of collections will remain limited. Collections will open to research use on a rolling basis as staff and resources become available. Please contact us to inquire about specific research interests or image requests.
