Boston Children's Museum does not have a parking garage. However, there are affordable paid parking lots and garages available in close proximity. Please consider public transportation if you can, especially during school vacation weeks. This is an exciting part of town, with a lot of development and construction taking place, which also makes parking more challenging on days when other businesses are open.
Please be advised that parking on Sleeper Street—directly behind the Museum—is for residents only. Your car could be subject to tow if you do not have the correct resident permit parking sticker.
