Without trips to museums, the most exciting thing to happen to most families would be the periodic elections to determine who gets to be Dad that week. Shake things up with this Groupon.

- $6 for child or adult museum admission for two (a $12 value)

Admission grants children and their adult supervisors access to six experience zones: an art studio, a theater stage, a produce-harvesting area, a forest-exploration area, a reading castle, and a creative construction room. Kids can also frolic in an outdoor organic garden that opens for seasonal exploration.
A giant tree spreads its limbs across a softly lit room as soothing forest sounds play. On a child-size stage, kids manipulate controls to flick theater lights on and off. In an art studio stocked with supplies, budding artists make creative messes. This is all taking place in Wonder Works' 6,400-square-foot space. Children aged 8 and younger explore six hands-on exhibits that help them express their creativity and develop mental and social skills. Wonder Works is able to cater to children with special needs.
The children's museum also hosts school field trips, and a variety of special activities and events including a children's music concert series, African American History Month, and the paleontology-centric Dino Works. In addition, an outdoor organic garden onsite gives kids an opportunity to marvel in the great outdoors without having to pay tolls to riddle-spouting trolls.
Overall the staff was very helpful and answered any questions I had. This will definitely be some place we visit again!Ginger T., Yelp, 3/30/11
