Museum Parking

The Huntsville Museum of Art will be implementing a new parking system in the near future. Guest parking will still be free, but will require registration.

Guest Parking

The Museum has a parking lot adjacent to the building. Guests park for free during Museum hours by registering through Bird Dog Parking and entering a validation code from the front desk.

  • Scan the QR code on the parking signs in the Museum lot or text CHM to 87517
  • Type in your mobile number
  • Open the text message and click the link
  • Enter your license plate number and select 15 minutes
  • Head inside the Museum to get a validation code from the front desk
  • Unable to scan the QR code?
    • The front desk has a link to do it manually, but make sure you know your license plate number
  • Going to Pan e Vino before your visit?
    • Follow the instructions for guests, but visit the front desk before heading to the restaurant so you get the validation code before the 15 minutes are up
    • You can even buy Museum admission at that time, and come back after your meal to enter the galleries

Additional metered parking can be found along the street on Church Street, Williams Street and Fountain Row. Download the Passport parking app to pay for public parking meters and locate all public parking lots on the City of Huntsville’s website. Parking is also available in the garage under the BB&T bank building.

  • Type in your mobile number
  • Open the text message and click the link
  • Enter your license plate number and select the rate and amount of time you need
