In 2017, Avesta Group has stepped in to carry out the operational and financial plan of the new and expanded MIT Museum in Boston.

 

A Science and Technology Collection

Founded in 1971, the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Museum hosts collection of holography, technology-related networks, artificial intelligence, robotics and the history of the MIT. Its holography collection of 1800 pieces is the largest in the world. Regularly, there are temporary exhibitions, often on the intersection of art and technology. 

In addition to serving the MIT community, the museum offers programmes to school-age children and adults in public at large. The museum coordinates the widely attended Cambridge Science Festival.

 

The New MIT Museum at Kendall Square

As part of MIT's Kendall Square Initiative, the MIT Museum is preparing to take up residence in the eye of Kendall Square's innovation district, where it will occupy more than 5,500 square meters of galleries, classrooms, and state-of-the-art programme and performance spaces - all at the threshold of MIT's campus.

Visitors from local and regional communities, as well as domestic and international travellers, will encounter a destination for curiosity and fun, and a venue for exploration through the Museum's extensive and unique collections of MIT's past achievements.

The Museum will serve as a convener for conversations and interactions between Cambridge residents, the MIT community, and the companies that have made Kendall Square their home.
