Parking Information

 

Buses
Buses visiting the museum may unload in front of the museum.

Accessibility
Use our 3rd floor accessible entrance on the north side of the museum. Once inside, the elevator will be on your left. Take the elevator up to the 4th floor, where you'll find visitor services.

Parking Garage
Parking in the KU Visitor Parking Garage is $1.75 for the first hour and $1.50 per hour thereafter. Patrons must prepay for parking, much like you would with a parking meter, by using one of the kiosks located in the parking garage stairwell. Failure to pre-pay for the length of time you will be parked in the garage will result in a ticket being issued. 

Using the KU Parking Garage:

  • Pull slowly into the garage from the north entrance to Jayhawk Boulevard, or via Mississippi Street and find a place to park.
  • Take a picture of your license plate, or write your plate information down, and proceed to the pay station within 15 minutes of entering the garage to pre-pay for parking.
  • Pay stations can be found in the southwest stair tower on levels 1, 4, and 5.
  • Payment can be made at pay stations with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card or with cash. Pay stations are unable to give change, so be sure to have exact change if paying cash.

Another option is to pre-pay for your parking time using the ParkMobile app. If you have the app, you can pay for parking by choosing Mississippi Street Parking Garage: Zone 3930.
