September 1 – September 30

September Salem Days

During the month of September*, residents of Salem, MA with valid ID (driver's license, school ID, etc.) may explore the Museum of Science for FREE, using Exhibit Halls, Planetarium, and Mugar Omni Theater passes that have been distributed to all homes in Salem or picked up at Salem City Hall. And please join us for a FREE ride on the MBTA's commuter rail from Salem to North Station in Boston on Saturday, September 8 or Saturday, September 22, 2018.

This offer is only valid for the 10:40 am train from Salem to North Station. Once at North Station, it is a 0.5 mile walk to the Museum of Science. You can also take the T green line subway from North Station to Science Park. Special commuter rail tickets will be distributed at the Salem Station between 9:45 and 10:30 am prior to boarding the train; only those passengers who have passes to the Museum of Science and proof of Salem residency will be provided free round-trip tickets for the commuter rail. The return ticket will be valid for travel on any regularly scheduled train from North Station to Salem and must be used on that day only.

Free parking will be available at the parking lot on the former site of Universal Steel on Bridge Street, next door to the F.W. Webb building.

We hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to ride the commuter rail and visit the Museum of Science free of charge during September Salem Days (September 1 – 30*). Please note that the train ride and Museum of Science visit is NOT supervised. Children MUST be accompanied by an adult. The City of Salem, the Museum of Science, and the MBTA are not responsible for unsupervised children.

*The Museum will be closed on Tuesday, September 4.
