Venue: Directions & Parking

This year’s Ball will be held at Charles River Museum of Innovation & Industry, 154 Moody St, Waltham, MA 02453. Please read below to choose your option on how to get there.


Per the Museum’s website:

Your BEST parking option for a visit to the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation is the Cooper Street / Embassy Parking Facility, on the southern bank of the Charles River, accessible at the end of Cooper St., just off Pine Street, which is a cross street of Moody. – CLICK HERE TO SEE A GOOGLE MAP for PARKING DIRECTIONS!

Once you’ve parked in the Cooper Street lot or the adjacent Embassy Parking Garage, all you need do is take a short but thoroughly enjoyable, scenic walk on the Landry footbridge across the Charles River, turning to your right (to the East) after you’ve crossed, and you’ll see the Museum entrance about 100 yards ahead. Enjoy your walk along the Charles!
