FAQ

ARRIVAL

We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your party- this will allow you time to unload your vehicle and get checked in prior to your guests’ arrival.

We recommend that you park, with your hazard lights on, in either of the loading zones near the front entrance of the museum, located on Centennial Olympic Park Drive or Baker Street – we will provide a cart to assist with this process. Once you have gotten all supplies out of your vehicle, you will then have to move your vehicle to one of the nearby paid parking lots/decks.
