After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $15 for two adult admissions to the Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit (up to a $30 value)

Beside complete skeletons, fossils, and a dig site, animatronic stegosauruses, protoceratops, and dilophosaurs move as they may have in real life. The exhibit focuses on recent research that suggests dinosaurs are ancestors of modern-day birds, and even showcases some feathered T. rexes and velociraptors. Along with Dinosaurs Unearthed, which runs through Monday, September 2, each Groupon is valid for admission to the rest of the museum.
The Witte Museum was born from many minds seeking a singular goal: to create a public forum that promoted lifelong learning. From a $65,000 gift bequeathed to the city of San Antonio after Alfred Witte's death in 1921, this museum of science, natural history, and South Texas heritage was built along the San Antonio River and named after the late Witte's parents.
Today, the Witte Museum still pursues this wide range of knowledge with hands-on scientific and historical exhibits. The museum's long-term features portray the natural wonders of southern Texas, including ancient rock art from the lower Pecos, examples of local ecology, and dinosaur fossils found locally while trying to uncover lost time capsules. Outside the museum, the H-E-B Science Treehouse collects four floors of interactive exhibits that explain sound waves, simple machines, and other scientific concepts to malleable young minds.
