Kentucky Museum visitor parking is available in the "Kentucky Building Lot" adjacent to the Kentucky Museum and in the "Adams Street Lot" across the street. Museum visitor spaces in this lot are at the front of the lot along the fence and marked with "Kentucky Museum Visitor" signs. Kentucky Museum visitors must sign the parking log at the Museum's front desk, and will be asked for car make, model and license number for parking control.
During special events signs will be posted with directions to overflow parking in the "Kentucky Street Lot".
Visitors to other areas of the WKU campus may park in these lots only if they have obtained a Visitors Pass from the Office of Parking & Transportation. Learn about the full range of parking options for visitors to the WKU campus.
