Children's Museum

Currently Closed

A  woman uses new parking kiosks to pay for her parking.


We have two parking lots adjacent to the Museum buildings - a smaller one next to the Backyard and a larger one that is highlighted by the Al Mo Oh sculpture of three "flying" bass fish.


Members:  $4
Non-Members: $6

How to Pay

Everyone parking in the Museum parking lots must pay prior to entering the Children's Museum. You can pay at one of five payment meters located in the Museum parking lots and at the Museum's back entrance, or by using the "Way to Park" app.  Learn more here.
