Like living rooms decorated with framed printouts of old Facebook profiles, museums help us remember who we once were and why it was complicated. Saunter through a shared regional history with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a one-year family membership to the Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center (a $65 value).
The Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center collects and exhibits scores of artifacts and documents, telling un-sordid stories of the region’s past and grandly displaying mustachioed southern history. A family membership grants you and your kin unlimited access to the six-floored-and-ceilinged museum for a year, affording the clan plenty of time to check out permanent exhibits such as George Washington and the Masonic Tradition, which offers irrefutable proof of the first president. Our Community tells a complex tale of Fredericksburg’s history, focusing on the civil rights movement and local women’s role in community preservation. Today’s deal also gets you invitations to special events, discounts at the museum store, and 20% off lunch fare at Splitsville Cafe.
