Unfortunately, the Museum does not have parking available for our guests. The best parking option when visiting the museum is metered street parking. There are meters on both sides of the street throughout the immediate area that cost $1.00 per hour with a 2 hour limit.
For longer term parking, you may use one of the many pay parking lots within close walking distance. Their prices vary between $5-12 for daily rates. Please do not park in front of the Museum in the spots marked ‘Staff Parking Only’ as you may be ticketed and/or towed.

Every attempt has been made to comply with all laws regarding accessibility for the disabled throughout the exhibit and gallery space. The main entrance is wheel-chair accessible and does not require a ramp. However, as a historic house museum, the Museum does not have access between the two gallery floors other than two staircases.
