Parking

Please note: Career Day will take place on the Mines campus September 10th and 11th. Parking will be difficult to find for these two days. The need to park in Golden and walk further will be necessary. Please plan your visit accordingly.

Limited visitor parking is available on campus for a fee. Parking on campus can be a challenge especially on weekdays during the school year and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.  

Visitor Parking

There are six visitor parking spots and two handicapped spots outside of the main museum entrance (the south side of the GRL building). You must pay to park in these spaces by using the electronic kiosk near the Museum entrance. Additional visitor and handicapped parking spots are located one block north of the Museum at 12th St. in the “L” lot near Marv Kay Stadium.  Visitor parking spaces will appear in purple sections on the campus parking map

School Bus Parking

Buses, please drop off guests outside our south door in the white loading zone and then proceed to parking lot Q around the corner (and up the hill) off of West Campus Drive, southwest of our building, to park for free.
