The Smithsonian is the largest museum on the planet, located in our nation’s capital Washington DC. The Smithsonian Museum attracts millions of visitors each year from all around the world. With so many people flooding into the city, parking is hard to come by. If you’re planning a visit, reserve your Smithsonian parking through Spothero to save time and money.

Smithsonian Museum Parking

Smithsonian parking spaces are available for both short and long-term. Since many people come in for day or weekend visits, there are plenty of spaces open near or around the area. Although there are postings for free spaces around the museum, these spaces have a 3-hour parking max. If you’re going to tour the entire museum, this limited space may not work for you.
Smithsonian parking spaces are located North, Northeast and South of the National Mall. All are within walking distance of the museum. If you’re planning to tour the area after a quick nip into the museum, there are hundreds of secured parking spaces within a 1 to 2 mile radius of the museum.
