As parking is limited and regulations are aggressively enforced, our guests are strongly encouraged to use public transportation to visit WMBR during the daytime and during snow. In the evenings parking opens up, and one can usually find a spot very close to us by 6 or 7 PM.

WMBR Front Door Once you've found the building, come right on in and go to the basement. Our doors are clearly marked, and the basement isn't too large so don't worry about getting lost inside. Please be warned that, after you ring the doorbell, you might have to wait a few minutes, since everyone inside may be on the air or involved in time-critical production.

Subway Take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT station which is a short walk from WMBR. Walk west on Main Street, then turn left on Ames St. Walk south on Ames St. until you reach Memorial Drive, then right and The Walker Memorial Building will be right in front of you.
