The museum is located in the heart of Gilman Hall on the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus.  Click here for detailed instructions on how to get to the Homewood Campus.  Gilman Hall is located on the west end of the Keyser Quadrangle, Building 28 on this more detailed campus map and is easily recognizable by its tall clock tower.  Please see a simplified version of the Homewood Campus map on the right of this page. Once in Gilman Hall, proceed to the first floor and follow our signs to the Museum, located in Room 150.


Parking is available at all locations marked with a “P” on the map to the right, or on the detailed campus map.  Street parking is also available on Charles Street and University Parkway. Information regarding parking rates can be found here. Bus parking is not available on campus.

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available directly behind Gilman Hall in a signposted parking area.  Please see our simplified campus map on the right for this location.  For wheelchair access into Gilman Hall follow signs posted on the building facing the accessible parking lot. Continue down the hallway to elevators.
