A new update (April 2016).... The new parking is completed.
If you come in off of Victoria Road and turn into the campus on the northern side of the Fernihust Dr loop (Close to the Smith-McDowell House), you go past the Student Activity Center and come to the new parking deck (where most maps and pictures still show tennis courts). More directions are below.

The museum is located in Asheville in Western North Carolina, easily accessed via I-26, I-40, and  Highway 19-23.  Asheville is bounded principally by I-240 on the north side of the city,  and I-40 on the south side.   I-26 is now connected though to Tennessee on a very scenic highway.

The Museum is located in Room 315 of the Elm Building at A-B Technical Community College, it is handicap accessible.  Following the directions below, you will enter this building from the parking lot.


We are just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway on the campus of the  Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College

From I-40, take Exit 50 to Hendersonville Road (US 25 North) which becomes Biltmore Avenue. Stay in the right lane, go through 6 traffic lights and make a left turn on Hospital Dr and left on Victoria Road in the Mission hospital area. Go about 0.8 mile and you will see the historic 1845 Smith-McDowell House on a corner; turn right and go about 200 feet.  You'll see the Elm building on your left and the parking deck a little futher on. Entering the Elm Building, go to the elevator in the middle and up to room 315 to the museum.

It's easier to find a space about 10 minutes before the hour.

FROM I-240:

Take Exit 5B (Charlotte Street) toward downtown .5 mile, turn left onto Biltmore Avenue.  In the vicinity of Mission St. Joseph Hospital, take a right on Hospital Dr and left Victoria Road, and follow the directions above.
