Directions & Parking
The Spencer Museum of Art is located on the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence. The building is directly behind the Kansas Union and directly south of the football stadium.
There is a drop off area at the front entrance of the Museum off Mississippi Street. This is a five-minute load/unload zone and vehicles may not be left unattended. Accessible parking is available across the street from the Museum in the Mississippi Street Garage next to the Kansas Union at an hourly rate. Limited mobility parking is available in front of the Museum; visit the Welcome Desk for a temporary KU permit. Parking along Mississippi Street and in lot 91 behind the Museum is free after 5pm on weekdays and at all times on weekends.
Please note that parking, including accessible spaces, is limited during KU football home games and other major events on campus, and may have increased costs.
Bicycle racks are located outside the Museum’s front entrance on Mississippi Street and on the west side of the building outside the Art History Department entrance.
