Parking Near Metropolitan Museum of Art

Exhibits include works from the Dutch Masters, modern-day art photographers, and everything in between. Central Park also has a world-class zoo, a lake with rowboat rentals, and dozens of scenic hiking trails with a wide range of difficulty. Most visitors to "the Met" spend the entire day in the area and then leave wanting more.

Does on-site parking cost more than other area lots?

What about on-street parking?
Fifth Avenue has no available on-street parking anywhere in the vicinity of the museum. A mix of street cleaning regulations and weekday/weekend rules control most of the area's side streets. For quick visits, Madison Avenue, one block east, has two-hour metered parking. Outdoor dining also has cut into the amount of already scarce parking spaces throughout the borough.
