If you're coming to Oklahoma City to visit the powering and sobering Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, you'll find that parking is fairly plentiful and generally easy to navigate. First, use this map & directions to get into the area. Then, here is a list of the best places to park around the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
NW 5th & RobinsonThe closest and most convenient parking area for the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum is a small surface lot at NW 5th and Robinson Ave, just east of the museum building. Note that, as with other options on this list, there is a fee for parking in this lot.
Street ParkingDepending on when you visit, you may be able to get one of the metered parking spots along the streets around the Memorial. You'll find several spots along Harvey just west of the grounds as well as along NW 5th west of Harvey. Meters cost $1 for 60 minutes or 25 cents for 15 minutes, in effect from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day but Sunday, and they accept quarters, dimes and nickels.
Bus ParkingIf you're arriving with a group on bus, the Memorial has designated bus drop-off parking at NW 6th. For questions regarding bus parking, you can contact the Memorial offices at (405) 235-3313.
Nearby GaragesIf you're looking for a covered garage, the options are somewhat limited. Within a short walking distance just south of the Memorial at 4th and Harvey is the Dowell Center garage. Parking is $5, but there typically aren't many spots available. For other garages, you'll have to travel a bit further south. There's the Broadway/Kerr Parking garage southeast of the Memorial at Robert S. Kerr and Broadway.
Bricktown/Downtown ParkingMany Oklahoma City visitors want to experience multiple aspects of the city while here, so parking in a centralized location could be the best idea. To get around, visitors can then walk, take a cab, the bus or even a bicycle.
Nearby areas of interest include the Bricktown entertainment district to the southeast. $5 is about the standard for parking in the area, and you'll find multiple lots along Reno Avenue. There is also a large lot just before the Harkins Bricktown Theatre, as well as lots on Sheridan Avenue (north of Reno) and Main (north of Sheridan). Keep in mind that none of these are covered areas. If you want a covered garage in Bricktown, take Sheridan to the Bricktown Garage just north of the ballpark.
Then there's the downtown area south of the Memorial. Those wishing to also check out attractions such as the Myriad Gardens, Civic Center Music Hall or OKC Museum of Art should review this full breakdown of downtown parking options.
Last but not least, if you want to check out a Thunder game, see this list of best parking options near the Chesapeake Arena, not too far south of the Memorial.
