DIRECTIONS FOR BUSES

Hundreds of school buses bring students to visit the Carlos Museum every year. Unfortunately, there is often confusion about where to enter campus, drop off students, and park the bus. To assist, we enlisted the help of a bus driver who made the trip himself to show the way. Share the video with your bus driver! View

ACCESSIBLE PARKING

Parking is available in the Oxford Road and Fishburne Drive parking decks. On weekdays before 4:00 pm, handicap accessible parking is available in the Oxford Road parking deck.
