Parking

The parking deck is open daily during museum hours and for special events and programs. Parking is free to VMFA members with membership card, $6 per day for nonmembers.

The parking deck can be accessed from the main museum entrance on N. Arthur Ashe Boulevard or from the intersection of Sheppard St and Stuart Ave. Walkways leading to the museum are available on every level (the walkway at the middle level is flat and is accessible via elevator from the upper or lower levels).

VMFA has made some upgrades to the Parking Deck. New parking gates and automated parking machines allow for wider entry and exit lanes for better access and less wait time when entering the Parking Deck. Guests will take a ticket upon entry and pay in the exit lane when departing, using credit card only. If you are unable to pay by credit card, please go to the Visitor Services desk while in the museum.

Members: Members can now scan their barcoded membership card or digital membership card to gain access to the Parking deck. Here are some tips:

Be prepared to scan your physical or digital barcoded membership card upon entry and exit from the deck. Scanning the card triggers the gate to open.

If you do not have your membership card, your membership has expired or if your card does not scan, don’t worry! Simply take a ticket from the machine when you enter the deck and visit the member services desk when you come into the museum. Member Services can validate your parking and issue a temporary membership card if needed.

To order new membership cards, email membership@vmfa.museum or phone 804.304.1520
