Museum Parking Lot

A lighted, secured parking lot is located east of the DIA. Located on John R. St., south of Kirby St. and north of Warren Ave. Daily parking rate is $7; cash and credit cards are accepted.

Street Parking

The City of Detroit has metered street parking located around the DIA. Parking is limited to a maximum of two hours. The DIA’s Parking Zone is 202. To pay, visit a kiosk or download the “Park Detroit” app. Because both the entrance and exit to the museum are restricted, the app is recommended to avoid having to “feed the meter.”


Valet is not currently available.
