A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo's collection of telescopes and Benjamin Franklin's drawer full of "No, I wasn't a president" T-shirts. Take a peek inside the mind of a historic figure with this Groupon.

Rosson House Museum
A prominent surgeon and Phoenix mayor, Dr. Roland Lee Rosson commissioned his 2,800-square-foot home in 1895. Fashioned in the Eastlake style of Victorian architecture, the 10-room dwelling included five fireplaces. These days, his abode serves as Rosson House Museum, where docents lead guests on 45- to 60-minute tours of the structure's restored interior. Along with glimpses into life during Arizona's late territorial period, visits include admission to Victorian-themed exhibits at the nearby Heritage Gallery. Besides public tours five days a week, Rosson House Museum hosts frequent family activities.

“I thought it very informative - the docent (Barb) was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about her subject. It was comfortable, not rushed, all questions were answered thoughtfully and we were totally thrilled to be able to tour he house and learn about a piece of Arizona's history. The second house we toured, the Victorian undergarments on display, made me so happy not to be born in that era - I will recommend the Rosson House highly to everyone we know. AND WE WILL BE BACK WITH GUESTS WHO VISIT FROM THE EAST COAST FROM TIME TO TIME.”
