  • Kingman Museum
    In The Kingman Museum’s newly opened mezzanine exhibit, a polar bear, frozen mid-snarl, presides over his fellow Ice Age beasts. Surrounding this tableau are glass cases filled with fanged skulls of extinct predators, prehistoric pottery, and miniature replicas of ecosystems. The eclectic exhibits lend the room the aura of a cabinet of curiosities, and are indicative of The Kingman Museum’s expansive mission to “provide lifelong learning opportunities in natural history, the universe, and world cultures for all ages for all time.” The scope of the museum reflects the swashbuckling spirit of its founder, Edward Morris Brigham. In the late 1800s, the explorer embarked on expeditions down the Amazon River, hiked across the Alaska tundra, and hopscotched across Hawaiian Islands. He toted back with him exotic specimens, fossils, and cultural artifacts, which now form the core of the museum’s collection. Over the years, the museum has expanded to include a planetarium, which screens nearly two dozen educational films that range from deep-space exploration to quests for the long-lost city of Pittsburgh. Additionally, museum curators inspire young minds with a slew of educational programs.

  • Gilmore Car Museum
    Vintage vehicles have been motoring into the Gilmore's antique buildings since 1966, bequeathing their retired chassis to the museum's collection of more than 200 horseless carriages. The classic chariots reside in more than two-dozen relocated, reconstructed edifices, including eight historic barns, a re-created 1930s service station, and a Mayan pyramid no one remembers erecting. The retro rides are occasionally cut loose for driving demonstrations on the 3 miles of paved roads contained within the museum grounds, filling the ears of visitors with the thrilling thrum of yesteryear. The campus also houses several transplanted collections, including the Model A Ford collection featuring cars invented 19 letters before the Model T. Though not included with this Groupon, day-trippers can sustain themselves with lunch served at the pristinely preserved Blue Moon Diner. Surfeited seekers of knowledge may then head to the Gilmore Car Museum Library to gorge their brains on the pickled publications and preserved prints. The collection houses thousands of items and articles, including owner's manuals, parts books, and pinups of scantily clad cars. Plan ahead and catch a special event to see even more historical hot rods than are kept on site.

  • Kids 'n' Stuff
    With more than 30 interactive exhibits and activities, Kids 'N' Stuff Children's Museum provides a safe environment for youngsters to exercise their imaginations and bodies. A veritable microcosm of the world lives between the museum's walls. For instance, a grocery exhibit stocked with produce and frozen goods allows children to fill up their carts, run the checkout lane, and refuse expired coupons. An 8'x16' climbing wall challenges youth to literally reach for new heights of achievement, and an art room equipped with an accessible easel and large-handled paintbrushes invites them to figuratively jump for the sky. As a further enticement to the arts, a drama area encourages wee ones to create puppet shows and dress up in costumes. Kids 'N' Stuff Children's Museum coordinates with area schools to incorporate and add to the themes from the local education curriculum, helping to reinforce the most important lessons kids are learning. Like NASA's recruitment department, this nonprofit's focus is on children aged 10 months to 10 years.
