A Note About Visiting Us: Our exhibits are spread out in several buildings across the NIH campus. At this point in time, the NIH campus is closed to visitors except for those who are participating in clinical protocols or who have other business on campus. We look forward to welcoming visitors again in the near future.
Our office is located on the NIH Bethesda campus in Building 60, formally known as the Mary Woodard Lasker Center for Health Research and Education — informally known as "The Cloisters" and "The Convent" because the building once was home to the Sisters of the Visitation of Washington. Indeed, the building is one of the oldest on the NIH campus, constructed in 1923. We like to think that the Cloisters is the most beautiful building on campus, as well.
