We may thank our lucky stars for inventions like tablet computers and hair tongs, but there are a whole host of other items that we use on a daily basis without even thinking about them.

For instance, tea bags, zippers and light bulbs have all changed people's lives over the decades.

Guests at Boston hotels will have the chance to think about the significance of some of these objects if they venture over the river to Cambridge's MIT Museum.

Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things will be showing between April 13th and September 1st and it promises to be both fascinating and informative. A range of items will be exhibited alongside their history to allow visitors to marvel at their sustainability and functional aesthetics.

It could be the perfect way to spend an afternoon for families, particularly those with kids who are interested in science.

Although the museum is in Cambridge, it is still easy to get to for guests at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston. Either drive down the I-90 West for ten minutes, or hop on the red line of the subway towards Alewife.
