LOCATION & DIRECTIONS
The American Heritage Museum is conveniently located in the Greater Boston region in Hudson, MA – about halfway between Boston and Worcester. The AHM is only 5 miles from Route 495 in Hudson. For GPS directions, please use the following address:
Depending on the direction you are coming from, your GPS may direct you to use Barton Road, Pine Point Road, or Hunter Avenue to access the museum, but this is incorrect. You cannot access the American Heritage Museum from Barton Road as the driveway listed is not actually there. If you are coming from points Northeast, please navigate to the town of Hudson first, then navigate to our direct address.
Parking is free at the museum and there are handicapped parking spaces available. Please note that due to popularity in the summer months, our overflow parking extends to a grass parking area, so please be prepared in case of poor weather.
