Free, off-street parking is available in a desingated parking lot on Thaddeus Lane. Under the solar canopy, this lot hosts two Level 2 EV charging stations through the ChargePoint network. The first two hours of charging is 20 cents per KWH.
From July 2022 through September 2023, the Museum’s accessible entrance will be through a temporary ramp into the front door. During that time, accessible parking is in the parking lot of Umbrella, across Charles Street from the Museum’s entrance. Temporary signage is in place guide visitors needing accessible parking to that location. We appreciate your patience as we build the Science Annex, which will make the Museum as accessible as possible.
