History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance that Napoleon will rise from his grave to criticize the shortcomings of NBA players. Admire what history has taught us thus far with today’s Groupon.

Located at the intersection of Clark Street & North Avenue in Lincoln Park, the Chicago History Museum has an impressive 22 million-piece collection of historical artifacts, documents, and photographs, as well as a world-renowned costume collection.

Admission includes access to all exhibitions in the Museum, including audio tours, and The Secret Lives of Objects, a special exhibition that features over 40 objects and artifacts that have emerged from the museum’s protected vaults, and offer hints of their mysterious pasts: they may be as decadent as diamonds, as revealing as crime evidence, or as perplexing as outdated modes of transportation.

The Children’s Gallery exhibition, Sensing Chicago, enables young visitors to explore Chicago’s history through the five senses. The Museum’s newest exhibit, Chicago Authored’ is the first-ever crowd-sourced exhibition in a new café-style space that explores a collection of diverse and inspiring works by writers, past and present. The works displayed here help us understand the character and complexities of the city of Chicago.

Chicago History Museum

Founded in 1856, the Chicago History Museum upholds its legacy as one of the city's oldest cultural institutions with more than 22 million artifacts blown in from the city's storied past. Permanent exhibitions include Chicago: Crossroads of America, which sends visitors on a journey through a re-created jazz club and features a replica of an original L car and the monkey bars that its passengers hung from during commutes. Collections of dioramas detail the story of the city's growth from a barren 19th-century trading outpost to the bustling, youthful city that hosted the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. Exhibitions centered on Abraham Lincoln offer an in-depth look at his campaign and election in 1860, and Lincoln's Chicago shows visitors a vision of the city as the 16th president saw it: from 7 feet, 6 inches in the air.

    “Had a great visit and learned a TON! A highlight was one of the curators sharing amazing stories of the Chicago Fire and rebuilding. He was delightful! Check the website as to the hours of operation. We went by the hours on the groupon which said the museum was open until 7pm and it in fact closed at 4:30. We only got to enjoy one floor.”

  • “Take the guided tour when possible. You will learn more behind the scenes info that is interesting.”
