We recommend dropping off and picking up visitors with special needs using the loading/unloading lane on 7th Avenue, between A and C Streets. Visitors can use the ramp to reach our main entrance, which faces C Street and is equipped with automatic doors.

Parking is available on nearby streets and paid parking lots. Public parking is available in the museum’s heated and secured underground garage on weekends and evenings. Accessible parking is always available in the museum’s parking garage. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The garage is accessed from 7th Avenue, between A and C Streets. Once parked, take the elevator to the ground floor where security will escort you through the museum to the main lobby.
