Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by ingesting a beaker or reanimating a cherished family parakeet. Bring science to life with this GrouponLive deal.
$14 for Admission for Two to Star Trek: The Exhibition (Up to $28 Value)
“Absolutely fantastic…we want to go back through it,” guests rave as they exit Star Trek: The Exhibition, an educational retrospective of the beloved science-fiction franchise. The 12,000-square-foot exhibition showcases original costumes, props, set pieces, and models spanning the Star Trek franchise's 45-year history. Guests can pose for pictures on a recreation of the Enterprise's bridge and on transporter pads or scrutinize intricate, original models of Borg cubes. Exhibits also break down the science behind Star Trek and discuss its connection to real-life technology. Special events include appearances by David Gerrold, who scripted the episode “The Trouble with Tribbles," as well as a lecture series and movie screenings in the center's Omnimax Theater. Guests enter the exhibition every half-hour.
General admission to the museum is included; though members get discounts, this Groupon still provides the best deal available for nonmembers.

More than 9,000 stars revolve around the 80-foot domed ceiling of the James S. McDonnell Planetarium, whose two levels of exhibits explore the future of space travel, life on the international space station, or Pluto’s bureaucratic search to regain planetary status.
