From the 210 freeway, take the Towne Avenue exit and head north on Towne Avenue. When you reach the light for West Baseline Road (only a few hundred yards from the freeway exit), turn left (west). The campus/museum entrance will be on the right side (north side), a few hundred yards past the Towne/Baseline intersection.
For a Google map, click here. Some mapping programs may tell you to enter campus via Webb Canyon Road; this is incorrect, and you should use the main entrance to campus on Baseline Road.
