Karl Johansgatan, Bangatan and Första Långgatan/Stigbergsliden are all streets that will bring you here.

If you are coming from Oscarsleden toward the west, get off at Fiskhamnsmotet and turn directly to the right toward Fiskhamnen. There is a parking area at Fiskhamnen. There are also a few parking spaces along the streets and smaller car parks closer to the museum. There is a disabled parking space next to the entrance, but apart from that the museum has no parking spaces of its own.
