Parking in the Museum Parking Lot is open for members and non-members as available. Parking is purchased upon exit, not upon entry. Parking is paid per vehicle, not per person.

  • Non-member parking in Lot B is $10 and can be purchased at the Box Office or upon exiting the lot. Only credit card payments are accepted.

In the event this lot reaches capacity, members will receive $5 parking across the street in Extended Lot C upon entry. You must have your digital membership card available to take advantage of your discount. Member parking price is only during operating hours. Not valid after 5 pm. 
  • Founders Circle members always receive free parking.
