EMU is located in the northwest corner of Harrisonburg. EMU’s street address is 1200 Park Rd, Harrisonburg VA 22802-2462. The Science Center, which houses the museum, is at the southern end of campus on Park Road. It’s easy to distinguish – look for the white dome of the planetarium, which is now the Discovery Room!
