History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant. Admire what history has taught us thus far with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get two adult tickets to the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum on North 2nd Street (an $8 value). An adult ticket begins at ages 13 and older. Tickets for children 7 to 12 are $1, and children 6 and younger enter free.
The 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum preserves and propagates the story and impact of World War II through archives, memorabilia, and oral histories. Known variously as the Hellcats, the mystery division, the suicide division, and the long-division whiz kids, the group of soldiers protected allied interests abroad by defending against troops in Germany in 1944 and 1945. Antiquity aficionados and Battleship champions alike can explore a timeline of the war, battalion displays with uniforms and photographs, infantry weapons, German and Japanese political regalia, war vehicles including the M16 Halftrack, and other artifacts.
