I'm being sent to Boston for a month long stint for work. During my off time I'd like to go exploring, any suggestions?

Maybe you can see the "Mule" made by Boston Robotics if I remember correctly?
Check out the uBotino robot controller!

MIT museum was AMAZING!! I especially liked the 25 year old hexapod robot.

Now I'm off to Virginia for 3 weeks. It seems the robots at work are stopping me form building robots at home.  :-\

The museum of science is more geared toward children. I was pretty disappointed at how elementary it is. The MIT museum, however, does not disappoint!
