The Museum does not offer on-site parking; however, there are a variety of parking options in downtown Madison.

  • The Museum is located between two city parking garages: State Street Capitol Garage and the Overture Center Garage. The City of Madison’s website is useful, providing information and a map as well as a website that shows which lots have parking available.
  • Accessible street parking is available on Henry Street near the blue U.S. Federal Court building, approximately 1/2 block away from the Museum’s main entrance at 227 State Street.
  • Each garage has dedicated spaces for disabled parking permit holders on the ground level. The State Street Capitol Garage has dedicated parking spaces next to the elevator on each level. Learn more about accessible parking spaces on the City of Madison’s website.

Bicycle Parking

Bike racks are available on the back of the Museum on Henry Street. Bike racks are located across from Fontana Sports and next to the Overture Center’s back entrance.

Please be assured that MMoCA staff members are monitoring the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community and implementing safety measures recommended by the CDC and local public health officials. Our top priority is always the safety of our guests and staff, and we ask that you help us keep our community healthy.

Masks are strongly recommended for visitors. Masks are also encouraged outside in the Rooftop Sculpture Garden. Some events may require masks. Due to rising cases of COVID, tour groups are required to wear masks.

MMoCA staff members have increased custodial duties of public spaces, including elevator buttons, railings, door handles, and faucets. Hand sanitizer and tissues are located prominently throughout the building. Anyone who recently experienced symptoms of COVID-19 or has been diagnosed with the virus is asked to stay home and recuperate.

We encourage you to check our website often, as additional policies and preventative measures may be added or amended to ensure that we follow all public health policies and recommendations from the CDC.
