MFAH Expansion update

From our neighbors at MFAH:


First, I would like to thank you for your ongoing patience as the MFAH moves ahead with the expansion and transformation of our main campus through the addition of three new buildings, underground parking garages and a new public plaza. I am writing with an update and information about the next step in this process: a shift in parking locations and procedures.


Beginning next, Monday, May 22, the newly constructed Montrose Parking Garage opens to the public. On this same day, the outdoor South Lot, across Bissonnet from the Law Building, permanently closes to allow excavation and construction to begin on the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building, scheduled to open  in late 2019. As a result, on-campus parking for the MFAH and the Glassell School of Art shifts to garage-only paid parking at the Museum’s two garages: the existing Fannin Parking Garage on Binz Street, and the new Montrose Parking Garage on Montrose Street.


For details about rates, hours, procedures, and limited-mobility access for both the Fannin and Montrose garages, visit to see the latest information.


If you have questions about parking, or if you need any help understanding the new procedures, please contact Andrew Spies, who has been designated as the parking manager at 713-639-7821.


If you have any questions or concerns about the expansion project, please call 713-830-5280.
