Worcester is 2 miles north of the east-west Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) via I-290, which bisects the city. Driving can be tricky in Worcester, with the convergence of highways and its one-way streets; getting detailed directions to your destination is advised. Amtrak (tel. 800/USA-RAIL; www.amtrak.com) stops here daily each way on its route between Boston and Chicago.
The Visitor Center is on the second floor of the Worcester Historical Museum, 30 Elm St. (tel. 508/755-7400; www.worcester.org).
