Details and Directions

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University is located at 230 The Fenway Boston, MA 02115. The entrance to the SMFA at Tufts is marked by a large rhino sculpture, made by alumna Katharine Lane Weems.

Because our limited parking fills up quickly—especially during popular exhibitions, holidays, and school vacation weeks—we encourage you to take advantage of the MBTA, Boston's public transportation system (known by natives as the "T").

The SMFA at Tufts is most easily accessed by the Museum of Fine Arts stop on the Green Line E train or the Ruggles stop on the Orange Line.

For more information about Boston's public transportation system, visit the MBTA website.

All visitors to SMFA at Tufts may also utilize parking facilities for the Museum of Fine Arts. We recommend that visitors park in the Museum Road Garage, which may be accessed on Museum Road.

All parking facilities have handicap spaces.

Please take your parking ticket with you; all parking facilities are automated. Payment for parking may be made in the garage lobby. Please note there are no discounted rates.

Home to more than 60 colleges and universities with more than 250,000 students, Boston is a great place to attend school—especially art school.

In addition to sharing a campus with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, our neighborhood is also home to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Just a short distance away is the Institute of Contemporary Art. Explore further and you will find more than 50 museums and dozens of galleries to inspire you.

As one of the oldest cities in America, Boston has an internationally diverse population with abundant culture-expanding opportunities. The urban setting of our campus gives you access to great music venues, classic and experimental theaters, independent film houses and bookstores, great restaurants and farmers markets, bike and walking trails, and of course sports venues, with Fenway Park less than a mile from our front door.
