Handicap parking at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum is available on Madison Drive. Unfortunately, the handicap entrance is on Constitution Avenue.
It is never easy to find parking at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, but it is not impossible either. Madison Drive runs by one side of the Museum. Constitution Avenue on the other side. The museum opens at 10:00 AM year round. During the summer high season and some other busy days, the Museum is open until 7:30 PM.
Jefferson Memorial parking can be very inconvenient. However, at least it is free.
Lincoln Memorial Parking is available. Read down the page to see your various options.
