By car: From I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike): Get off at Cambridge (exit 18). Turn left immediately onto Soldiers Field Road (west). Take Harvard Square exit, bear right across Anderson Bridge, and drive straight into Harvard Square. You’ll pass Out of Town News on your right, then merge with Massachusetts Avenue. Keep Harvard Yard on your right. Stay to the right at the fork, and go into the underpass. Once you emerge from the tunnel, turn left onto Quincy Street and, after one block, left again onto Kirkland Street. Kirkland ends at the Science Center; turn right onto Oxford Street. Physics buildings Jefferson and Lyman are behind the SEAS McKay Laboratory on your left. Vehicle access is available further along on the left, but the only available public parking is on Oxford Street.

Once in Harvard Square

Upon exiting the “T“ station, walk into Harvard Yard to the statue of John Harvard; from here take path to your left, exit the yard and veer left, around the Science Center (modern white building).
