Parking

Garage Renovation: October – November 2018

  • Beginning on Monday October 22 through late November, select garage ramps will be limited to one lane, surrounding traffic flow will be redirected, and parking capacity in the garage will be reduced.
    • The garage may be full more often than usual during this project.
    • Traffic congestion entering and exiting the garage may result.
  • If your plans permit, consider using public transportation.
  • If you drive, please:
    • Anticipate possible delays and allow extra time before any scheduled events or shows.
    • Be prepared with a backup parking plan in the event the Museum garage is full.
    • Pay close attention to staff instruction, signs, and cones directing traffic. Entry and exit paths will be temporarily modified and may change from one day to the next.

Garage Hours

  • Sunday – Thursday: 5:30 am – 11:00 pm

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. (Regular garage fees apply for parking.) For more information: chargepoint.com.

The Museum of Science is committed to environmental sustainability.

Alternative Parking

Other parking options near the Museum include the CambridgeSide Galleria.

Please note that this garage is not affiliated with the Museum of Science, and the parking discount for Museum members applies only in the Museum garage.
