Map & Directions

From the University of Arizona and east Tucson town: Take Broadway Boulevard West into the Downtown underpass in the middle lane. Exiting the underpass, continue onto north bound Toole Avenue. Pass Tucson’s Historic Depot on the right and look on your right 25 feet up in the air for the Solar-Powered Semaphore Railroad Signal marking the Museum site.

From the north: Come south on Stone or 6th Ave. and turn left immediately after the underpass onto Toole, or from 4th Ave. turn sharp right after the underpass. The Depot and Museum are between 4th and 6th Avenues with Maynards, across from Hotel Congress.

Interstate 10 Travelers:   BOTH DIRECTIONS
Turn East at the Congress/Broadway exit, continue east on Congress to 6th Avenue and turn left. At Toole Avenue, just before the underpass, turn right. Look on your left 25 feet up in the air for the Solar-Powered Semaphore Railroad Signal marking the Museum site. Enter the Parking Lot just before the Semaphore Signal and Museum, or park otherwise as below.


There is limited FREE parking in front of the Depot. There are Parking Lot Meters Northwest of the Museum and in front of the depot. Parking meters in the lot and on the street run 8:00-5:00 M-F. The lot is free after 6:00 PM, holidays, and weekends.


The 750-space Pennington Street Garage, 110 E Pennington, is secure and shaded. Access the garage on North Scott Avenue, just North of Congress Street. The parking garage is the multi-story building painted bright green. Walk West on Pennington Street to Toole Avenue to the Museum and Depot. The El Centro Garage is accessed from the right lane of Broadway after the underpass. Cross the street and continue in front of the depot to the museum.
