We are easily accessible via the Interstate system and Illinois Route 59, which is located just to the east of downtown. 

Free 2-hour street parking is available along Main Street.

Alternate free parking can be found along Turner Court (4-hour street parking) or in the parking lot alongside Turner Court. From these parking locations, visitors can take sidewalk ramps to Main Street or ascend the stairs for a more direct route. 

We always have fun things for kids to do, too! A cozy place to read and play, a train table,  hands-on activities, and a coloring area make City Museum a great place for kids.
