2019 IMS and LiveWorx attendees: Analog Devices would like to welcome you to Boston! With two HUGE industry trade shows taking place in our home state this June, we’ve created the ultimate Geek's Guide to Boston to help you find the best places to geek out in our beloved capital.


Part science museum, part planetarium, part indoor zoo, the Museum of Science spans the Charles River near Boston’s historic North End. Its three wings of exhibit halls investigate just about every conceivable natural and scientific discipline, from human biology and mathematics to space exploration and nanotechnology.
 Take the Red Line north across the Charles River to Cambridge, home to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where Analog Devices co-founder and chairman of the board Ray Stata earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
We’re still geeking out in Cambridge. Have you ever seen a 17th-century gunner’s square? Harvard University has a few you can see.
 For the next stop on our Boston-area geek-out it's back across the river to Massachusetts General Hospital. Remember: No visit to the Russell Museum is complete without a stop at the Ether Dome.
If you're in town on a Wednesday, pray for good weather and you'll be in for a treat — clear skies over Boston University make for superb stargazing.
 There's a lot to see inside the sixth Geek's Guide locationthough the kinetic sculptures of Arthur Ganson are worth the price of admission by themselves.
The DNAtrium provides a cool, interactive lesson in how genomic technologies are transforming science and medicine, all right in the lobby of the Broad Institute's Cambridge campus.
 Situated in Boston's flourishing Seaport neighborhood, District Hall is the Geek's Guide location closest to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, venue for both IMS and LiveWorx. It's a great place to get some work done, meet with colleagues, host an event, and even grab a bite or a drink.
The geek-out potential here is not the building itself, but rather the site on which it stands. What is now the JFK Building's Cambridge Street entrance was once a length of Court Street. It was in the house at 109 Court Street in March 1876 that Alexander Graham Bell ushered in the age of the telephone when, speaking over the wire to his assistant Thomas Watson, he uttered the now famous words, “Mr. Watson, come here — I want to see you.”
 Our geeky jaunt around the Boston area ends on a delicious note. Good eats, a companion beer selection and a quirky, science-themed vibe make the Miracle of Science the perfect geek haven to refuel and refresh.
