Museum acquisitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own closet full of skeletons. Discover a body of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year family membership to Gull Wings Children's Museum (a $60 value). For more than 20 years, this nonprofit children's museum has captivated pint-sized minds with engaging exhibits that explore the natural world, with an emphasis on the local environment. Daily programs range from adventurous Story Times to tactile Touch Tank Talks. Hands-on arts and crafts activities let children build sentient hand turkeys and homework-finishing androids that run on apple juice and "believing." The family membership includes one-year of free admission for two adults and all children residing in the household (younger than 18). Members also receive a 10% discount on gift-shop purchases and invitations to members-only events.
Gull Wings Children's Museum
Gull Wings Children's Museum appeals to many childhood aspirations as it teaches—the Blast Off area lets kids pretend to be astronauts, the Home Town Hero exhibit lets them play firefighters, and the Lego-a-Go-Go room lets them portray immobile plastic bricks. Aside from the many exhibits, there are a series of regular programs in reading, science, and other subjects. The museum also hosts special events such as storytellers and dance groups.
