Convenient garage parking is available for a small fee on weekdays just one block from the museum at either Euclid Avenue and Second Street (adjacent to the Marriot University Park Hotel) or Tyndall Avenue and Fourth Street.

Allow at least one hour for your visit. A comprehensive tour of the content-rich exhibits could take more than two hours. Don’t forget to allow yourself some time to shop in the museum store!
Arizona State Museum has no in-house café. There are, however, a number of restaurants and cafés just meters from the museum at the University of Arizona Student Union to the east, and more than 25 restaurants, cafés, and bars to the west on Main Gate Square.
