Tips for Visiting

Finding Us | The museum is located at the very back of the mill complex. Keep the giant smokestack in view; we’re located just below it.

Parking | Most of our visitors park in the Municipal Parking Lot on Pine Street, but there are several public parking lots and meters within walking distance.

Where to Eat | Waltham has more than 100 great restaurants, many of which are found near the museum on Moody or Main Street. Choose from incredible ethnic cuisine, fine dining, or good old American. Click here for a list of Main Street and Moody Street restaurants.
