This offer is only valid for the 10:38 a.m. train from Salem to North Station. Once at North Station it is a short walk to the Museum of Science. Special Commuter Rail tickets will be distributed at the Salem Station between 9:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. 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.
