Parking & Directions

In accordance with Governor Walz's executive order that allows workers in certain non-critical sectors to return to safe workplaces, the Science Museum of Minnesota’s parking ramp has reopened for modified business. Please read our reopening safety guidelines to learn more about our new safety measures and requirements before visiting the parking ramp. We look forward to serving employees who are returning to work in the neighborhood.

The parking ramp is open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Sunday starting August 10. Parking is $5 for all parkers.

The flat $5 fee is payable by credit card only at the ramp exit pay stations on level P5, P2, and the parking ramp exit.

The Science Museum is located at 120 W. Kellogg Boulevard, across from the Xcel Energy Center and RiverCentre in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota 55102.

Our exact location is at 44° 56' 34" North latitude, 93° 05' 54" West longitude. For more information about how latitude and longitude are determined, visit this NASA page.
