Parking

There is no public parking facility at the Smithsonian on the National Mall. Due to street closures during Grand Opening Weekend there will be no on-street parking options available. We encourage you to take public transportation. If you must drive, there are numerous commercial parking lots throughout the city. Download a parking map for the National Mall (.pdf). 

Reserved parking near the National Museum of African American History & Culture can be purchased ahead of time through Parking Panda.
