BMA East & West Lots

The BMA East and West Lots are available for BMA and Gertrude's restaurant patrons, and include wheelchair accessible spaces. BMA Members receive $3 off parking during Museum hours, available at the Welcome Desk. Parking rates are:

  • FREE for up to 30 minutes
  • $9 Daily Rate (6am–5pm)
  • $6 Evening Rate (5pm–12am)
  • $6 BMA Members at all times.

You can pay for parking in the BMA East and West lots at the Welcome Desks in the East Lobby and Fox Court, or at the big blue machine near the entrance to Gertrude's Restaurant. We accept coins, debit cards, and credit cards.

Please note, the rates above were increased as of July 1, 2019. These modest increases make it possible for the BMA to perform necessary maintenance on our parking lots.

The accessible entrance is located on the east side of the building. There are a limited number of handicap parking spaces in front of the East Entrance.
Visitors with handicap tags may park in the East and West parking lots for free. Bring your parking ticket to the Box Office for verification and validation.
