From New Jersey Turnpike (I-95):
Turn off at Exit 9.
After toll booths, bear to the right.
Follow signs for "Route 18 North - New Brunswick."
Proceed along Route 18 North past exit for "Route 27" and take the exit marked "George Street - Rutgers University" (approximately 2.6 miles from the Turnpike).
At the top of the exit ramp, bear left onto George Street heading toward downtown New Brunswick.
Make first right onto Seminary Place.
At the end of Seminary Place, make a left onto College Avenue.
The entrance to Parking Lot #11 will be on your right; during the Spring and Fall semesters, the gate is usually down. If this is the case, please proceed around the block (two right-hand turns) to the Center. You will be provided with a "key card," which will allow you to enter the lot, and a temporary parking pass for the lot.
Enter Lot #11 and go "as far back" as you can. That is, the History Center is located on Union Street (at the corner of Union and Mine), which runs parallel to College Avenue. Imagine that you are using Lot #11 to "cut through" to Union Street and you will find it.

If the gate to Lot #11 is not up:
Proceed past the Lot #11 entrance and turn right at the next light (Hamilton Street).
Take the next right (Union Street).
The History Center is the last building on your right, at the corner of Union and Mine Streets.
Look for parking on Union Street, or double park briefly and run into the History Center to get a key card and parking pass for Lot #11, then drive back around to College Avenue and the Lot #11 entrance.

From the IEEE Operations Center:
From Sidney Road, turn left onto Hoes Lane and continue over the bridge into New Brunswick. Take the first exit (George Street) after you cross the bridge. The exit ramp will go up a small hill, with traffic lights at the top. Turn right onto Huntington Street, and take it for one block to College Avenue. Turn left onto College Avenue (note that pedestrians have the right of way in all crosswalks). Follow College Avenue about half a mile to the next set of traffic lights (Hamilton Avenue). Turn right onto Hamilton Avenue, and take your next right onto Union Street. The IEEE History Center is at the corner where Union Street dead-ends into Mine Street. See above for parking instructions.

Walking directions from the Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick:
Walk up Route 27 (street in front of hotel) to the New Brunswick Train Station. Turn right at the Station and proceed up Easton Avenue on the train station side of the street. Proceed three blocks (Wall Street, Hamilton Street, Mine Street). Make a right onto Mine Street and proceed one block to Union Street. As you cross the street, the History Center will be in front of you, #39. It is an old brick house.
