Parking at the Museum

There are allocated parking spaces for the museum in the lot across the street (at S. Ave K and W 15th Street). During the summer, street parking is permitted. During the semester, street parking will be ticketed without a visitor permit, which can be obtained in the ENMU Public Safety building located at S. Ave K and W 3rd Street.

Tip: All the buildings on campus have the same address (1500 S. Ave K) so if you have trouble, go into the Administration building (this is where GPS will take you) and ask for Lea Hall, or for ENMU Police if you are trying to obtain a permit. Both buildings are past Administration on the same road.

"1457-1461" is listed on our Google page as the address for Lea Hall, and some GPSs prefer this address when navigating.
