The Broad Discovery Center is an active, public educational space that showcases how researchers in Kendall Square and around the world are seeking to understand and treat human disease.

Visitors will learn how researchers at Broad and our partner institutions are teaming up with collaborators across the globe to chase down the basis of psychiatric conditions, cancer, infectious diseases, and more, develop new strategies for treatment, and build datasets and technologies to share with scientists everywhere.

There are many interesting museums to visit in Boston - peruse our Boston Museums guide to find out which one you should visit next.
