By Bike

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.
