• Lot C is just northwest of the Capitol. building.
• There is street parking along John Ireland Blvd. You will need to download the “PassportParking” app to pay.
• Finally, you can park at the Best Western Capitol Ridge for a fee (161 St Anthony Ave, St Paul, MN 55103).

Please give yourself ample time to find parking. If you park along John Ireland Boulevard, you can take advantage of the Capitol complex tunnel system; walk into the nearby Minnesota Department of Transportation building and follow the tunnel on the ground floor to the Capitol, which will lead you to the Vault Room.
