Directions, Parking, and Entrances
Located in Courthouse Plaza
10 N. Ludlow St
Dayton, OH 45402
The Museum is located in the heart of the city on downtown Dayton’s Courthouse Square off of North Main St. We are just west of the large fountain. The Museum can also be accessed to the west at 10 N. Ludlow St across from City Hall and just north of the Arcade.
There are multiple surface parking lots as well as two parking garages within one block of the Museum. The City Hall parking garage (Third St and Ludlow St) and the Art’s Garage (Second St and Ludlow St.) across from the Schuster Center and the Arts Annex are the closest.
City parking meters, including for persons with physical disabilities and reserved parking spaces, are numerous near the Museum and are free of charge in the evening and all weekend. The closest disabled person parking spaces are just outside our doors on N. Ludlow St.
The city’s main bus terminal is less than two blocks to the south and east along N. Main St. The Flyer, the bus serving the University of Dayton, has stops very near the Museum and The Arcade.
