Museum & Outreach

The DNAtrium

The DNAtrium is dedicated to exploring the information in the human genome, our genetic instruction book. Through unique exhibits, the DNAtrium showcases how genomic science is propelling progress in biology and medicine. Visitors can hear from scientists about their groundbreaking work at the Broad Institute, peer into the laboratory machines that yield torrents of biological information, and connect with recent discoveries in genomic science from around the world.

This unique space is located in the lobby of the Broad Institute at 7 Cambridge Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts on the campus of MIT.
