Hours and Admission
Please review the Plan Your Visit page for details on museum admission, hours, and other offerings.
Since metered street parking is scarce, the museum offers discounted parking at some nearby lots through Parking Panda website. When reviewing parking options, filter by “Accessible Parking” and any other amenities you may require. Once purchased, present your purchase confirmation at the selected location.
MetroAccess is a shared-ride, door-to-door, paratransit service for people whose disability prevents them from using bus or rail. Please visit the MetroAccess site for information about how to book transportation.
Museum educators will work as best they can to accommodate the accessibility needs of individuals and groups who disclose their needs in advance. If you are interested in booking a tour, please review the museum’s tour offerings and indicate any accessibility needs and special accommodations that you require on the request form.
