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 will re-open for modified business on Tuesday, April 28. We look forward to serving employees who are returning to work in the neighborhood.

Beginning Tuesday, ramp hours will be 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please note that the ramp will not be accessible outside of these hours. During this transitional period, parking patrons will pay a flat rate of $5 per day, which is payable by credit card only at the ramp exit pay stations.

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.
