What is the Cruise-In? Where will everyone else park?
The Cruise-In gives you preferred parking across from our museum. It’s in a grass field but is reasonably level for lowered vehicles. We will have several apparatus that you can park next to, which is great for photo ops! ADA parking is also across from the museum with van access.
Everyone else will park at the gate which is a short walk down the road. See this map below.
