Bus Drop-off and Pick-up

Mill City Museum provides a bus drop-off and pick-up zone directly in front of our main entrance on South 2nd Street. Look for the red-capped meters and signs. The bus zone is limited to Tuesdays through Fridays, October through May, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Please note that this bus zone is for drop-off and pick-up only - no bus parking or idling is allowed.
 

Bus Parking Options

Mill City Museum does not provide bus parking, and bus parking options in the area are very limited. Groups wishing to make arrangements on their own have these options:
-Buses can park at city parking meters, provided they pay the meters, obey posted time and date restrictions, and are not idling. No idling is allowed at any meter.
-Groups can contract directly with a private parking lot (ABM and Impark own pay lots in the area) to pre-arrange paid bus parking.
-OR groups can contact the City of Minneapolis to pay to have hooded parking meters in the area for your buses. In addition to the hooding and lost revenue fees, this also requires a (free) obstruction permit from the City.  http://www2.mplsparking.com/reservations/charter_bus.aspx
 

Car Parking Options

The museum does not have any reserved car parking, but there are many paid options in nearby ramps, meters and surface lots.

 

Please respect our residential neighbors and obey posted parking restrictions in the area by not idling or parking illegally.
