Free parking bites the dust

Every time I’ve been to the art museum, I’ve looked out over the the lines of cars parked behind the building and wondered about the parking rules. There never seemed to be anyone minding the lot and it looked pretty much like a free for all system. I always had a hard time believing that though, because it’s the art museum. Parking couldn’t possibly be free.

Well, it turns out it was, at least on weekdays, although according to the art blog, it isn’t any longer. They say that the PMA will now charge $5 for parking 7 days a week, although starting April 1st, members of the museum will be eligible for $1 discount.

    Are you talking about the lot where the park is just before Boathouse Row?!?

    I’m talking about the parking on the art museum terrace, right by the rear entrance to the museum. Most the parking by the boathouses is still free, except the stuff they reserve for valet parking for Waterworks.
