We aim to be accessible to all families and individuals. Through Museums for All, we’re pleased to offer free admission to guests who might not otherwise be able to visit. For more information, see the NCSML blog post about Museums for All or contact the NCSML.

We also offer a special rate of $5 per person for groups with disabilities. Please call in advance to book your group and secure this rate.


The NCSML offers complimentary parking for our guests.

Heated Parking Garage: To access our temperature controlled garage, simply pull your car next to the large sensor outside of the garage entrance. The door will open automatically. (Our elevator is accessible from inside the garage.)

Parking Lot: We also have a parking lot in front of the building. We’re sure you’ll see this one first — you can’t miss it!

Bus Parking: Buses are welcome to park and unload in the roundabout circle drive in the front of the building.
