Riverfront museum considering offering free visitor parking
“So right now we’re losing money, so if we can automate and become more efficient…I guess we could automate and continue to change and maybe make a little money. But I would rather offset those and create an amenity for our visitors and go cost neutral on the thing and be more welcoming to the people that come down and visit the museums.”
Gappmayer says he’s also looking at allowing employees to park in the deck. That would require the County Board to change the museum lease operating agreement. Gappmayer says the museum pays 30-thousand-dollars each year for staff to park outside the deck and allow more room for patrons.
