The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University is located on our Fenway campus:
The entrance to the SMFA at Tufts is marked by a large rhino sculpture, made by alumna Katharine Lane Weems. Because parking is very limited in this area, we encourage you to take public transportation when traveling to the Fenway campus. For information about Boston's public transportation system, including fare information and schedules, visit the MBTA website.
SUBWAY:SMFA 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.
BUS: The #39 bus to the Museum of Fine Arts stop is the most direct bus. You may also take the #8, #47, or #CT2 buses to the Ruggles stop. For information about Boston's public transportation system, including fare information and schedules, visit the MBTA website.
PARKING: 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").
Museum Road Garage - Parking rates range from $10 to $29 depending on the length of your stay. Museum members receive a discount.
Please take your parking ticket with you; all parking facilities are automated. Payment for parking may be made in the garage lobby, or by credit or debit card at the exit lanes of the lots. Scan your membership card to receive the discounted rate.
Street Parking - Limited street parking can be found on Museum Road, The Fenway, and Evans Way. We recommend that you download the ParkBoston app to pay for metered parking with a credit card. This app allows you to track the time left on your meter and reminds you when your meter is about to expire.
