Enjoy a lively evening of entertainment, science, and tinkering for the 21+ crowd!

Thursday September 14
Play On

This September, we’re teaming up with the MIT Game Lab to explore the potential of play. Sit down with a beverage and a board game, remix some music, simulate a world, and learn about MIT’s history of game design. Once the sun sets, head to the nearby Open Space for a performance by MIT’s Spinning Arts Club.

Local brews from Aeronaut and authentic Chinese homestyle fare from Dumpling Daughter available for purchase.


Thursday October 12

Celebrate National Book Month at our novel October After Dark. Take in a performance by the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, design your own MIT Press book cover, and create a solar print. In our Collections Workshop, join our curators for a close look at prints and printmaking equipment from the 17th to the 20th centuries.

Craft beers from Lord Hobo and tasty bites from Za available for purchase.
