Visit Us

We’re located in the historic North End of Boston, an accessible and livable city that provides a wonderful backdrop for the training that occurs in the classroom. Known as the Hub, Boston is a center for learning and culture and conveniently located in the heart of New England.

Health & Safety Update

The School is open for in-person, full-time program instruction and Continuing Education classes—with precautions and protocols in place. Guests are allowed by appointment, and our Store is open to the public. Masks are optional for vaccinated individuals while at NBSS, or at School-sponsored events. We ask that unvaccinated individuals wear a mask at all times.

For regular updates, FAQs, and resources, please visit our Health & Safety page.

Virtual Tours

At the School’s core are nine Full-Time, professional programs, each of which offer intensive, hands-on training. Take a virtual tour here for an inside look at each program.

Getting To the School

Boston has an extensive public transportation system of commuter trains, subways, trolleys and buses that makes it possible to get around the city without a car.

Our physical address is 150 North Street, Boston, MA 02109.

Everyone is welcome to stop by the School and visit our showroom. Our program spaces are not open to the public, however. If you’re considering applying to one of the full-time programs, we encourage you to join us for an Info Session.

Transportation

Public transit: We are conveniently located near multiple service routes and the neighborhood is very walkable. The closest MBTA stop is Haymarket on the Orange and Green Lines, and the Aquarium stop on the Blue line is slightly father away. There are also a number of options for bus service.

Biking: If you plan to visit by bicycle, we have a rack located across from our building where you can lock your bike. Our facility is also near several Bluebike bike share stations.

Driving: The School does not have a dedicated lot, and on-street parking in the North End is difficult to find. If you plan to drive, your best option is to park in the Haymarket Center parking garage (also known as the Parcel 7 Garage) and walk to the School.

We validate Haymarket Center Garage tickets at our front desk as follows:

  • $1 for up to 2 hours of parking
  • $3 for up to 3 hours of parking
  • Longer than 3 hours – about $10 an hour with no validation discount, capping at $33 for 5-24 hours.
  • Complimentary parking may be provided at special events.
