Metro: The Metrorail (subway) entrance is near the southwest corner of M and 7th Streets, NW. The Green and Yellow subway lines stop at this exit, called the “Mt. Vernon Square/7th St/Convention Center” exit. All other subway lines connect to these two lines, so the Convention Center is served by the entire Metrorail system. Guests arriving via Metro can see the entrance to the Convention Center directly in front of them as they travel up the escalators exiting the Metro. Download the Metro Map (PDF).
