Directions & Parking

Kentucky Museum visitor parking is available in the "Charles Hardcastle Kentucky Building Lot" adjacent to the Kentucky Museum and in the "Adams Street Lot" across the street. Museum visitor spaces in this lot are at the front of the lot along the fence and marked with "Kentucky Museum Visitor" signs.  Kentucky Museum visitors must sign the parking log at the Museum's front desk, and will be asked for car make, model and license number for parking control.

From South of Campus:

Follow University Blvd. with Diddle Arena to your right. Go straight through the light at University Blvd. and College Heights. Kentucky Museum will be on your right after you pass CVS Pharmacy.

From North of Campus:

Follow Old Louisville Road/Duncan Hines Hwy. and the road changes to Adams Street. Continue on Adams approximately 1.5 miles. Look for Adams Street Lot on the left across from Textbook Brokers. Visitor spaces are all the way across the lot near Kentucky Street and are marked with "Kentucky Museum Visitor" signs.
