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. Here is a list of the best places to park nearby.
NW 5th & Robinson
The 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.
Depending 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.
If you're arriving with a group on a bus, the Memorial has designated bus drop-off parking at NW 6th. For questions regarding bus parking, you can contact the Memorial offices.
If 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. It's inexpensive 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.
Many 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 typically 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 downtown parking options.
