Plan Your Visit


The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History is committed to making its exhibitions, programs, and services accessible to everyone.

Entrance and Within the Museum

There is an access ramp at the Museum's north entrance door. To access the ramp, enter through the west gate of the Mary Rippon Theater. Within the museum, an elevator is available for handicapped visitors to travel between floors.


The closest public handicap parking is located in front of the University Memorial Center on Euclid Avenue. These parking spaces are metered. A handicap placard will allow public parking in CU Lot 208 without a University parking permit after 5 p.m. and on weekends only. The cost is $4.00 (exact change is required).
