If you have never been there before that section of Washington Street is a one way going West. To park you go past the museum going west on Washington and just barley past the deer statue you turn right into the grounds and then turn left and go down into the underground parking. Watch for the parking area marked for the Eiteljorg Museum and park near the elevator tower. Take the elevator up to the top floor which will be the ground level, there are two levels of parking so remember which one your are on. When you get out of the elevator you go around the small tower and go out side to get to the large front wooden doors (South side of the building). Come in and go the Education Center Studio which I believe is downstairs. Parking will be free.

[If you arrive late and the doors are locked you must walk around the west side of the building and around the back side going down by the canal level and enter the Education Center there]

If you are really late you are or will be out of luck as the rest of us will be on the tour and that door will get locked.

For further driving instruction from all directions go to then in the upper left click on Plan your visit, click on Getting to the Museum and scroll on down for maps and directions.
