The nearest subway stop is the Harvard station on the Red Line. Take the Church Street exit and walk NNE through Harvard Yard to the Science Center. Then proceed away from the Science Center on Oxford St. The Northwest Building is just beyond the Harvard Museum of Natuural History, on the right hand side of the street.

From Logan Airport, take the Silver Line bus from your terminal to South Station and then the Red Line (Inbound, towards Alewife) six stops to Harvard. For journeys from other starting points, see the MBTA trip planner.
