For taxis, ask for 25 Evans Way. Some GPS don't yet recognize this address. Look for the large glass building.
From April through November, Hubway bike-sharing system is an ideal way to travel to the Gardner Museum. Visitors can rent bikes at Hubway stations across Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville, and dock them at stations by Simmons College on the Fenway or Longwood Ave., both five minutes from the Museum. Visit Hubway's site for pricing and details.
By Subway or Bus
Free/metered street parking is limited around the Museum, but it's an easy walk from the subway or bus stop, and we strongly recommend public transportation.
For subway, hop on the Green Line E train outbound to Heath Street, or for bus, the No. 39. Take either to Museum of Fine Arts stop. Cross Huntington Avenue onto Louis Prang Street. Walk down Louis Prang Street for two blocks. The Museum will be on the left.
The next nearby station is the Fenway Green Line station at Landmark Center.

Beginning March 1, 2013, traffic patterns around the Sears Rotary (where Boylston Street, Brookline Avenue, Park Drive and the Riverway meet) will be adjusted to accommodate the Muddy River Restoration Project to abate flooding. Visitors traveling by car through this area should expect delays, and are advised to seek alternate routes, such as Huntington Avenue, or use public transportation.
Three pay parking lots are available at the Museum of Fine Arts, on Museum Road off Huntington Avenue. Museum Road is now a two-way street, and can be entered from Huntington Avenue or from the Fenway.
Walking from the lots on Museum Road, head towards the Fenway, then turn left onto the Fenway. Veer right at the fork onto Evans Way, toward Louis Prang Street. Continue across Louis Prang Street, then veer right, into Evans Way Park. Walk diagonally across Evans Way Park, and you'll reach the Museum's entrance, in the new wing, which faces the park.
