Maps and Driving Directions

Program your point of origin here for driving directions.

Campus maps, accessibility maps, parking maps, and a welcome map (which helpfully includes the orientation of one-way streets) are available from Brown's Department of Facilities Management.


Parking is at a premium around Brown University campus. There is limited metered two-hour parking near the Museum, and though it is usually possible to find parking within a few blocks, visitors are encouraged to allow enough time to find parking.

There is a Visitor Parking Lot located at the corner of Power and Thayer Streets.

Collections Research Center

The Museum's Collections Research Center located in Bristol, RI is open by appointment only.  Please call 401-863-5700 or email [email protected] to schedule an appointment.
