KAM is located at the corner of Sixth Street and Peabody Drive on campus at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to building construction, galleries in the Kinkead Pavilion portion of the museum will be de-installed starting in November 2023. That portion of the museum will close December 22, including the Giertz Education Center. It will remain closed throughout the yearlong project.

The remainder of the museum, accessed via Peabody Drive, including Art Since 1948, Encounters the Arts of Africa, and special exhibition spaces in the East Gallery, West Gallery, and Light Court, will remain open to the public.


An Orange Block I or a parking meter with a Pay to Park sticker indicate places to park. All parking spaces require payment to the UIUC Parking Department, either at a payment kiosk, the website PayByPhone | Simplifying your journey, or via the MobileMeter app. Signage provides payment instructions and parking zone information. Our team can assist with making payments for parking in our lobby during museum hours.

Parking payment is enforced Monday-Friday from 6 am until 5 pm. After 5 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends, you may park for free in lots and on streets near the museum.

Parking is available in the museum lot at the corner of Peabody Drive and Sixth Street (Lot E19). Visitors with a valid state disability placard or plate will find designated spaces in Lot E19 and Lot E18 (north of the Art & Design Building, accessed via Fourth Street). Please see our Accessibility page for more information.

Parking is available in front of the museum on Peabody Drive. When using spaces marked with the Krannert Art Museum Parking sign, please request a window parking pass from the attendant in the museum lobby. Parking fees must still be paid during hours of operation, but your parking pass will designate you to parking enforcement as a museum visitor.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to building construction, parking in Lot E19 and along Peabody Drive is currently limited. Additional public parking for the museum can be found in the parking garage at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Fourth Street (Lot E15) and the parking lot at the corner of Peabody Drive and First Street (Lot E24). Additional street parking is available along Pennsylvania Avenue between Fourth and Sixth Streets.

More information on campus parking is available at the University of Illinois Visitor Parking page.
