The first thing you’ll encounter upon arriving at the Museum is a dramatic, sci-fi looking stairway—perforated steel stairs framed in white neon and yellow walls. The stairway, as well as the Museum’s façade and Visitor Services, were renovated in 2001. The renovation, designed by former MIT architecture professor, Wellington “Duke” Reiter, received an Honor Award for Design Excellence from the Boston Society of Architects.
