We are pleased to offers tours to faculty and their research teams; staff from MIT departments, centers, and offices; alumni clubs; and outside groups including corporations and industrial visitors interested in nanoscale discovery and innovation.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer tours to individuals, families visiting MIT, or tourists. You are welcome to visit our exterior spaces and learn more about MIT.nano from this points of interest guide. We also encourage you to visit the MIT Museum in Kendall Square.
