Directions & Parking

On Campus Car and Van Parking

There is no free parking on campus and the Museum regrets we cannot validate parking for visitors. The Museum is only a 7 minute walk away from City of Austin metered street parking along Dean Keeton (26th) St. between San Jacinto Blvd. and Red River St. The rate is $2 per hour Monday-Saturday, 8 am to 6 pm.

On campus garage parking is available for a fee. The university's San Jacinto Garage, located just north of the museum on Trinity St., is the most convenient for visiting the museum. The San Jacinto Garage is accessible via both Trinity St. and San Jacinto Blvd. Van clearance in the San Jacinto Garage is 6'11". Manor Garage, located at the southeast corner of Robert Dedman and Clyde Littlefield Dr., is another option. Manor Garage has a van clearance of 8' on level 1 and 7' on other levels.

1-2 hours $6.00

San Jacinto Garage does not have a staffed office. Please call UT Parking & Transportation Garages at (512) 232-8314 for garage parking information. 

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 uppermost level of the garage.
