Parking & Arrival
Check in for parking instructions. The parking place is in the paved driveway of the Vasa National Archives. The Vasa faces the 109 S Bishop Hill Rd and the driveway is on Knox and S Bishop Hill Rd. Your GPS may take you to 109 N Bishop Hill Rd. If there is a green house across the street with a metal fence in front, you are in the correct place. There is no park across from us. DO NOT TURN ONTO KNOX ST FROM S BISHOP HILL ROAD: there is a dip in the road that has captured tour buses. Please go east on Main St off of S Bishop Hill Road and drive around the block. Once on Main St turn right onto Erickson and then another right on Knox. You will see a red house on the right and the Vasa National Archives is the driveway right next to it.
