  1. Can I visit and tour the Media Lab?

    The MIT Media Lab is an academic, research laboratory, and does not offer tours of the research areas of the Lab to the general public. 

  2. I work for a Media Lab member company. How do I arrange a visit?

    Contact your program manager. If you're logged in, their contact information can be accessed via the insite page (password required).

  3. I am involved with a nonprofit group that is very close to the Media Lab's mission. How do I ask whether a tour might be possible for us?

    You can contact us via the contact page and ask. Please be aware that we need at minimum four weeks of lead time. 

Lobby Exhibits

The lobby of the new Media Lab building (MIT building E14, 75 Amherst Street) houses a rotating series of research and historical exhibits and is open to the public from Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. The original Media Lab building (MIT building E15, the Wiesner Building) is home to the MIT List Visual Arts Center and is open to the public. In addition, the lobby of E15 and adjacent outdoor spaces are home to several pieces from MIT's public art collection, including Kenneth Noland's Here-There, which inspired the original Media Lab colorbar logo.
