Touring colleges in Cambridge and Boston? Harding House offers accommodations near MIT, Harvard, and within easy access of the many other schools of Cambridge and Boston. We often recommend an afternoon at the MIT Museum as a fun break for guests we welcome who are visiting schools in the Cambridge and Boston area.
Love science? Hate big crowds and long lines? Harding House B&B is only a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from the very engaging MIT Museum. Less well-known than Boston’s larger museums, MIT Museum is a fun place to spend an afternoon learning about the many past, present and cutting-edge science & engineering technologies happening at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, our famed neighbor.
The Museum, family-friendly and interesting to people of all ages, offers science and engineering events, activity workshops, performances, talks and discussions, and festivals as well as permanent exhibitions. See their events calendar: http://web.mit.edu/museum/visit/calendar.html
MIT Museum is open daily 10 – 5 except major holidays. July and August closing time is 6. It’s wheelchair-accessible.
