Accessing the Museum this Summer

May 2017 marks the beginning of the transformation of the east end of Washington University's Danforth Campus. Construction will begin on Monday, May 22, and will affect access to the Museum.

Due to construction, the parking lots in the vicinity of the Museum are not accessible. Museum visitors may park in the University's Danforth, Snow Way, or Millbrook garages, but must purchase a hang tag from the University Bookstore. Find out more here and view a campus parking map

Street parking is available on Skinker and in Forest Park, about a two-block walk to the Museum.
