Parking and Public Transit

Parking

Access to the Museum parking lot off Washington Street will be extremely limited during construction of the new Kasser Family Wing, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2020.

Where to park:

  • Metered street parking available around the Museum
  • El Presidio Parking Garage, 160 W. Alameda Street (south side of street, ramp descends to underground parking). The Museum does not validate parking. This is the best option for visitors who need accessible parking spaces.

During construction, visitors should expect to travel a greater distance than usual between parking and the museum entrance. Please use extra care while navigating the TMA campus during this time, especially on the flagstone sidewalk adjacent to La Casa Cordova (along Meyer Avenue).

Public Transit

Sun Tran is the local bus company operating city buses around Tucson. There is a Sun Tran bus stop by the east entry of the Museum on Alameda Street. Routes 3, 81, 82, 83, 103 stop there.
