PARKING

From now to approximately December 3 (notice will given if the date changes), parking will be restricted due to construction. In general, parking will be available in our main parking lot and on Lexington Street. Our secondary parking lot will be only accessible from Park Place. See map (Right click and select "open in new tab" to enlarge).

To accommodate construction for the addition to the NBMAA, we have reconfigured the Museum’s parking lot. Despite losing spots in the old Museum lot, our net gain is over 25 new spots.

Handicap Parking: The usual driveway at 56 Lexington Street has been rearranged, with handicapped parking to the right.

Regular Parking: Please follow the left hand directional sign. There is additional parking in a lot connected at the back of the driveway (Park Place) and in a lot to the left of the driveway (Lindquist Property at 24 Lexington Street). Also, there is always free street parking on Lexington Street and along the Walnut Hill Park side of the Museum.

The NBMAA has been asked to inform visitors not to park in the lot at the Medical Building, 33 Lexington Street; unauthorized vehicals parked there will be towed at the owner's expense.
