Arriving by Car

Easy, self-service, Pay-By-Space parking is available near the Museum by following these directions:

Enter UCLA campus Lot 4 from Sunset Blvd. at Westwood Plaza and turn left into the Pay-By-Space area of the lot.


Pay-By-Space parking is always available for Fowler visitors, regardless of whether the lot 4 parking kiosk is staffed!

Automated pay stations in Pay-By-Space accept $1 and $5 bills and credit cards.

The parking fee is a maximum of $12 for the whole day. One hour parking costs $3, 1.5 hours is $4, and two hours is $6.  When the parking kiosk is staffed, it is also possible to pay there a flat daily fee of $12.

The Fowler is visible to your left when you ascend from the elevator or stairs.


Arriving by Public Transportation

The Fowler is a lovely walk from the UCLA Transit Center at Hilgard and Strathmore Avenues, where several public bus lines stop. Use the interactive map on the UCLA Transportation website to find the best connection to public transportation for you.
