First Fridays are busy nights in the Arts District, especially as the weather warms up! There are several events in the neighborhood on June 1, making the coming First Friday extra-festive. But with a little planning, we’re confident you’ll reach us in plenty of time to hear Scott read every word of The Bugliest Bug!
Tips for getting to the Museum & Theatre on Friday, June 1:
Plan your parking. Some nearby parking garages and lots (including the By the Bay Parking, adjacent to the Holiday Inn) will be closed to the public on June 1. Fortunately, there are several garages within walking distance, including the Gateway Garage on High Street (about a 4 minute walk), the Monument Square Garage (about a 7 minute walk) and the Elm Street Garage near the library (about an 8 minute walk). Download this handy parking map for other options.
Use pedestrian or pedal power. Bike in (we have a bike rack out front), or lace up your sneakers and stroll in from Munjoy Hill, the West End or beyond! Google Maps offers walking and biking directions to help you plan your trip, and Portland Trails is a great resource for finding a scenic route.
All aboard the bus! All Portland METRO buses stop near the Museum – some routes stop just a few yards from our front door! Routes #1, #3 and #8 have the closest stops (just outside Starbucks). For other routes, maps and schedules, visit the METRO website.
