Parking & Accessibility
When visitors arrive at the museum, free parking can be found in a small lot located to the museum’s western side. This lot also includes handicap parking. Vehicles can enter this lot from West Cheves. There is also free parking in the city lot directly behind the museum, as well as free parking along North Dargan Street. Additionally, bus parking can be found directly behind the museum courtyard. Buses can best enter the parking area from West Cheves.
To see the museum in its entirety, visitors are required to walk distances and climb stairs that may be difficult for guests with mobility disabilities. Wheelchairs are available upon request and seating is made available throughout the museum for your convenience. Visitors should also note that the second floor galleries can be reached by elevator and all museum restrooms are handicap accessible.
Planning to bring a group of 10 or more to the FCM?
An in-depth, docent-led tour is a great way to obtain a better understanding of any of our exhibits. Regularly scheduled docent-led tours take place every Thursday at 2:00 pm. A tour of any one of our galleries lasts approximately one hour. For a list of dates and subject matter, please see the docent-led tour schedule below.
We are also happy to coordinate a scheduled tour for your organization. We can accommodate groups up to 60 people per scheduled tour. Scheduled tours are free of charge, but require a refundable $25 deposit to secure your reservation. To schedule a tour, please contact the Curator of Education or call 843.676.1200.
