Parking lot at South Curson Avenue

The museum's parking lot is located at the corner of Curson Avenue and 6th Street, directly behind the museum. Enter from the western side of Curson Avenue. If you choose street parking, please read all parking signs carefully, as restrictions apply. Most importantly, do not park along Wilshire Boulevard between the hours of 7-9 am and 4-7 pm (Monday - Friday), or your car will be ticketed and towed. This applies even if you are parked at a meter.
