History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a basic membership for your entire household to the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science.
Founded by the Ladies' Literary Club in 1874, the Evansville Museum has grown to be one of the state's most comprehensive museums, housing a variety of art, history, and science exhibits. Recent offerings include the interactive Outreach to Space, a kid-friendly demonstration about the principles of space travel. Wander through permanent galleries like the life-size 19th-century Rivertown USA, climb aboard the museum's vintage train, or visit the Koch planetarium to gaze at man-made starry skies while a narrator summarizes complicated intergalactic conflicts. Your online membership also includes invitations to members-only openings and events, discounts on classes and lectures, plus admission to more than 275 other museums.
