MIT, located only 12 minutes from our hotel, welcomes visitors from around the globe to wander its alluring campus—featuring copious green spaces, pocket gardens, alfresco public art and a contemporary arts museum—as well as nearby Cambridge gems. Founded in 1861, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has a mission designed to “advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.” Within the independent and privately endowed university, students choose between five Schools—architecture and planning; engineering; humanities, arts, and social sciences; management; and science.
