Queens Museum parking
Queens Museum, formerly known as the Queens Museum of Art, is a popular art museum in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. There is limited free parking on the premises, but you’ll find plenty of alternative parking options nearby. We whittled down the best parking lots below with tips on how to use public transit if you’re looking to forego parking entirely.
The museum sits at the following address: Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Building, Queens NY 11368, United States
Museum Tickets and Hours
The museum is closed Monday to Tuesday and on specific holidays. Operating hours vary throughout the week.
|Monday – Tuesday||Closed|
|Wednesday – Friday||12 PM – 5 PM|
|Saturday – Sunday||11 AM – 5 PM|
All visitors enjoy free admission by booking a timed ticket in advance, while tour groups must reserve their slots before visiting and pay $6 per person.
While the entrance is free for individual guests, the museum employs a pay-as-you-wish policy for visitors who want to support the museum. The suggested admission is $8 for adults and $4 for seniors. Entrance is free for children 18 and under, students of New York City colleges, and New York City Department of Education employees.
Convenient Parking Near the Museum
The museum offers free on-site parking on two surface lots (green circles), but as spaces are minimal, we do not recommend parking here. You can take your chances, but note that even the museum suggests eschewing their parking lot in favor of public transportation.

Street Parking Near the Museum
You’ll find abundant street parking in the Corona neighborhood, just a 12-minute walk from the museum. However, you’ll have to contend with stiff competition from locals and tourists. Most street parking here is free for an hour, but make sure to read the signs to avoid an NYC parking ticket.
