Preparing for Your Visit
NASA Glenn Open House
May 17 and 18, 2008

Parking, Maps and Directions - Because of security and space limitations, on-site public parking will only be available to people with disability parking permits. All other cars should park for free at the I-X Center and grab a free shuttle to NASA. You may also ride the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to the Brookpark Rapid Station (normal fairs apply) and transfer to a free shuttle bus to NASA. Last shuttles to NASA leave at 6 p.m. from all locations.
