  1. Oh for close parking, or valet service, or shuttles so cripples such as I could access the fun and games at the FJJMA. But alas……………

    We enjoyed our visits to see and experience the happenings there. Now we live with good memories. Thanks!

    • Russell O. Hayes – Thanks so much for your interest in the FJJMA! Ask anyone what the primary issue at the university is, and they’ll tell you that it’s parking. We do have new, expanded parking to the north of the museum and we are working to improve how visitors can access and use this lot. Regarding closer parking, visitors are always welcome to use the museum’s front loading zone as a place to drop off and pick up passengers in order to save a longer walk to the parking lot. Of course we would LOVE to offer valet services or shuttles, but all parking issues are handled by OU Parking Services. However, you are welcome to share your experience with them and see if they have other suggestions for improving future visits. Please feel free to contact OU Parking & Transportation Services at (405) 325-3311 or parking@ou.edu and share your concerns and ideas. We hope you’ll return soon; please let us know of any other ways we can help improve your next visit!

      • Lack of parking is one thing, but lack of accessibility is quite another. What is FJJMA doing about accessibility?

      • Hi Jennifer, thanks for your inquiry. The museum offers complimentary wheelchair service, and visitors may be dropped off and picked up in the front loading zone. We are happy to provide a wheelchair as needed, and after visitors are dropped off, drivers may park in our complimentary visitors parking across the street. Does this address your question?
