Between commuter traffic and parking limitations, reaching the cultural hub of Greenwich, CT, may seem like a daunting task to some, yet the Bruce Museum and the Metro-North Railroad are working together to make the trip more convenient and accessible to all.
The Museum and Metro-North offer a “One-Day Getaway” package that includes discounted rates for both train tickets and admission to the Bruce Museum from any station on the Metro-North Railroad.
Travelers receive a discounted admission rate to the Bruce Museum of $4.25 for adults and $3 for seniors 65 and over, children between ages 5 and 11, individuals with Medicare, and persons with disabilities. Train fares are reduced and vary depending on the station customers are leaving from. For example, a round-trip Getaway fare from Grand Central Terminal to Greenwich is $17.25 for adults, $13.50 for seniors, individuals with Medicare, and persons with disabilities, and $2 for children between 5 and 11. Children under 5 receive both free admission to the Museum and free train fare.
While the program offers easy access from New York City to Greenwich, it also appeals to Connecticut residents along the New Haven line. The savings are appreciable, too: Round-trip Getaway fare from Fairfield Station to Greenwich is $5.75 for adults, $4.50 for seniors, and $2 for children ages 5-11. The One-Day Getaway package is available at ticket offices and full-service ticket vending machines.
The Metro-North TrainTime app provides live updates on track and schedule changes and lists upcoming train schedules and track numbers. For more information about the One-Day Getaway offer, click on the “Visit Us” section of brucemuseum.org.
