From the Massachusetts Turnpike: Exit at "Brighton/Cambridge." Follow signs to Cambridge. The Doubletree Hotel will be on your right. Go straight over the bridge into Cambridge (on River Street) and take your first right onto Memorial Drive. The Charles River will be on your right. Go straight on Memorial Drive, staying to the left and going over the overpass at the Boston University (B.U.) Bridge (past MicroCenter). Staying in the left lane, pass under the next bridge, which is the Harvard Bridge (Massachusetts Avenue). The first street after that bridge, to the left, is Ames Street - but it is one way in the wrong direction. You will have to take the second left (sign says Kendall Square) onto Wadsworth Street. Take the first left onto Amherst Street. On Amherst Street, take the third right onto Ames Street. The Media Laboratory is the second building on your right. It is a large, contemporary, white-tiled building.

From Logan Airport: Leaving the airport, take the Sumner Tunnel to 93 North. Exit right off of 93 at the Cambridge/Storrow Drive exit. When the ramp splits, bear right following signs to Storrow Drive. Exit left at the Kendall Square exit. At the traffic light, go right onto the Longfellow Bridge. Follow Main Street (Main flows into Broadway) and take a left at the second set of lights (Ames Street). The Media Laboratory will be on your left about a block and a half down Ames Street. Logan International Airport's Web site provides up-to-the-minute information on weather, construction and traffic.

To Logan Airport: Drive away from the river on Ames Street, and make the first right onto Main Street. Follow Main Street to the Longfellow Bridge; proceed over the Longfellow Bridge. At the end of the bridge, there will be signage directing you to Route 93 South. Follow Route 93 South to the Airport exit.

From Route I-93: From I-93, take exit 26, and follow the signs to Back Bay along Storrow Drive West, approximately 1.5 miles, to the exit for Route 2A. The exit will be on the left, just before the Harvard Bridge (Massachusetts Avenue). The Charles River will be on your right. As you cross the bridge, you will be looking at MIT. At the end of the bridge, turn right on to Memorial Drive. The first street after that bridge, to the left, is Ames Street—but it is one way in the wrong direction. You will have to take the second left (sign says Kendall Square) onto Wadsworth Street. Take the first left onto Amherst Street. On Amherst Street, take the third right onto Ames Street. The Media Laboratory is the second building on your right. It is a large, contemporary, white-tiled building.


From 20 Ames Street to One Cambridge Center: With the Media Lab (20 Ames Street) on your right, continue on Ames Street. Make the first right (Main Street). One Cambridge Center is on the left after the lights (you will see signs for the "T" or subway on both sides of the street), immediately after the plaza in front of the Marriott Hotel. Street parking is not available in this part of Kendall Square. Please see our parking page for information on garages in the vicinity.
