After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon to The Aviation Museum of Kentucky. Choose between the following options:

  • For $7, you get two adult passes (a $14 value).
  • For $10, you get a family day pass (a $20 value). This pass is valid for up to six family members.

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky, located at Blue Grass Airport, hosts an impressive squadron of rare and restored aircraft, aviation memorabilia, interactive educational displays, and an active aviation restoration shop. Like a skyward snapshot from a former time, a flock of steel birds suspended on wires hangs from the hangar’s expansive ceiling to commemorate the Commonwealth’s rich history of aviation. A replica of Matthew Sellers’ 1908 quadruplane—the first aircraft built and flown in Kentucky—headlines the collection and extends one of its majestic wings to shake hands with awestruck museum-goers. Other exceptional designs include a Skyhawk once flown by the Navy’s Blue Angels and a high-bypass turbofan used to propel modern jumbo jets. Guided tours and interactive exhibits delve into the science and history of flight, and the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame honors the lives of those who have soared among the clouds, whether in planes or wrapped around the waist of Michael Jordan. Youths can learn more about the variety of aviation careers and set their sights on following the tailwinds of famous pilots and designers.
