Museum Garage Information

  • On busy days, e.g., weekends and vacation periods, the garage may fill to capacity. Allow extra time to get to the Museum before your visit.
  • Visit the directions page for driving and public transportation information.
  • The Museum is located near the heart of Boston, and city traffic can cause backup as cars exit the garage. We appreciate your patience.
  • Bring the parking ticket with you for payment at automated kiosks (debit and credit card only) inside.
  • The Museum's garage includes an elevator for easy Museum access.
  • Parking is available for visitors with disabilities.
  • Clearance is 7'4".

Please note: A state project on the Longfellow Bridge is rerouting traffic to O'Brien Highway in front of the Museum and may cause delays. Please visit the directions page for more information.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The Museum of Science garage now houses Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations capable of charging up to four cars simultaneously. The stations are located on the fourth floor of the garage—just follow directional signs to the designated charging area.

While there is no cost to charge your car, you will need a ChargePoint account to access. However, a fee of $5.00 per hour will be charged beginning 30 minutes after your car is fully charged if it is not moved. In addition, regular garage fees apply for parking. For more information:

The Museum of Science is committed to environmental sustainability.
