Those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it, which is why many students avoid learning anything about the fun parts of history. Have fun schooling yourself with today's Groupon to the Destroyer Escort Historical Museum, moored in the Hudson off Broadway and Quay. Choose between two options:

  • For $20, you get a family membership (a $35 value).
  • For $14, you get an individual membership (a $25 value).

A destroyer escort that battled U-boats in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters, the USS Slater now fights nautical ignorance as a fully restored living museum of World War II combat. After undergoing 15 years of restoration work, the ship stands in the Hudson as the only remaining destroyer still floating. Tours guide visitors around the Cannon-class destroyer, which is heavy on antisubmarine equipment and electronic surveillance gear used to track down underwater vessels and aggressive mermen. Sailors of the information superhighway can also take an online tour of the floating gun stack before visiting.

Members get free admission, the museum's quarterly newsletter, and the knowledge that they've helped preserve a historic water plane. A family membership includes immediate family members, but not endearingly permanent house guests.


New York and All Over Albany featured the USS Slater. Four TripAdvisors give it a four-owl-eye average, and more than 750 Facebookers like the attraction.
