What You'll Get

The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. Go back in time and set the record straight with this Groupon.

  • $7 for admission for two (up to a $14 value)
  • $14 for admission for four (up to a $28 value)
  • $20 for a family membership for up to six (a $40 value)

About Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation

Housed inside Boston's monumental textile mill, the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation invites guests on a trek through American history with a collection of artifacts dating as far back as 1812. Throughout the building's hallowed halls, interactive displays cleverly disguise education as amusement, coaxing visitors both young and old to steer a 19th-century fire engine, play a foot-powered piano, and teach an antique telephone switchboard how to send text messages. Enduring exhibits also showcase Waltham's industrious past with displays dedicated solely to textiles, watches and clocks, and transportation, including bicycles and penny-farthings powered by shredded pieces of yellow journalism. Members can take advantage of such perks as complimentary museum admission, invitations to special events, and unlimited use of the museum library.
