By Regional Rail: It is super-easy to come by train. Take the SEPTA Paoli-Thorndale Line from any of the downtown stations (Temple, Market East, Suburban, or 30th Street). Almost all trains stop at Bryn Mawr. Walk on Morris (which is the street you see first getting off the train), cross Montgomery Ave, and take the next left onto Yarrow St, which soon meets Merion Ave; you are now on campus and, from here, anyone should be able to point you to the Park Science Center, or you can use the local map.

Other transit options: We can also be reached from the Bryn Mawr stop on the Norristown High-Speed Line (NHSL) (but this walk is a bit longer). Buses 105 and 106 stop nearby on Lancaster Ave.
