Special note: Because of very limited parking and tight security on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus, we encourage you to take advantage of public transportation and the shuttle we will provide from the Bethesda Marriott Hotel. (The shuttle will also stop at the Medical Center Metro on Sunday. Please see more information below.)

If you decide to drive to campus, please keep in mind the following: All vehicles are inspected before they enter onto the campus. All visitors must present picture identification (i.e., drivers license, passport, Government or military identification) and go through a personal property inspection (purses, briefcases, backpacks, etc.) to enter the Cloister. Please allow plenty of time because inspection areas can be very congested early in the morning.
