There is no free parking on campus and the Museum cannot validate parking for visitors. On campus garage parking is available for a fee. The Museum is only a 7 minute walk away from metered street parking along Dean Keeton (26th) St. between San Jacinto Blvd. and Red River St. The rate is $1 per hour Monday-Saturday, 8 am to 6 pm.
Parking is available at the university's San Jacinto Garage, located just north of the museum, and Manor Garage, located at the southeast corner of Robert Dedman and Littlefield. Van clearance in the San Jacinto Garage is 6'11". Manor Garage has a van clearance of 8' on level 1 and 7' on other levels.
Please note: The university’s Parking and Traffic Rules and Regulations state that a vehicle must fit wholly within the parking space—side to side as well as back to front. Especially large vehicles (such as four door trucks with hitches or other attachments) should park on the roof of the garage.
