By car

There is limited pay and display parking available directly outside the museum in Blandford Square, but this tends to fill very quickly, especially on busy days such as the school holidays. We advise parking at the Grainger Town multi-storey car park located on Waterloo Street (opposite side of St. James' Boulevard to Discovery Museum).
