Location and Accessibility


The East Entrance is most direct for the Library. It can be entered via the driveway on the east side of the Museum off Convention Avenue, south of South Street, just past the entrance to Penn Museum Lot 7. This driveway is directly across from the SEPTA Penn Medicine Regional Rail Station (formerly University City Station). Guests may be dropped off at the East Entrance but the Kress Lot is not open for public parking. This entrance has a power-assisted door.
