Parking

At Kaleideum Downtown, parking is limited. Ask that chaperones carpool if possible in order to avoid overcrowding with parking.

Please park in spaces marked with green lines or on Brookstown Avenue. Our neighbors have the right to tow cars parked in their reserved spaces.

Please have your bus driver park in the designated Bus Parking Lane on Liberty Street beside the Museum. Please do not turn into the Museum; the shape of the parking lot is not friendly for the length of a school bus.

The school year chaperone ratio at Kaleideum Downtown is 5:1. For every five children, one chaperone gets in for free. Additional chaperones beyond the ratio are charged a discounted $6 admission fee (tax included).
