Parking Information

Kaleideum’s preferred parking deck is the Liberty Plaza Parking Garage, located at 235 Town Run Lane. Parking is $2 per hour.

If you will be at the museum longer than two hours, you can purchase a parking pass at the Welcome Desk for $4. When you leave the parking garage, you will need to scan two things:

  1. Scan the ticket you received upon arrival.
  2. Scan the parking pass you purchased at Kaleideum.

You will then be able to exit the parking deck at no charge.

THIS PARKING DECK IS NOT FREE ON WEEKENDS.
