History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant. Admire what history has taught us with a seasonal twist thanks to today’s Groupon for the Laura Ingalls Wilder-inspired "A Little House Christmas" tree exhibit at Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch. The exhibit runs from November 20–January 2. Choose from the following admission options:
- For $6, you get two adult admissions (age 16–61) to "A Little House Christmas" (a $12 value).
- For $3, you get two senior admissions (ages 62 and up) to "A Little House Christmas" (a $6 value).
The richly-detailed pioneer life of Iowa native Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books comes to life on 20 Christmas trees in this seasonal exhibit at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum. Historically adorned conifers such as the Fiddle and Harmonica Tree will transport minds to simpler days when Wilder's father, Pa, would bow up a tune, or to the memories of last weekend's trip to prairie band fantasy camp. The natural charms evoked by the exhibit's Wildflower Tree or enchanting Doll Tree, adorned with dolls Laura herself may have cherished, loom adjacent to a display of authentic artifacts from the Wilders' original Mansfield, Iowa home. A Little House Christmas offers whimsical holiday cheer to both adults and children (under 16 admitted free) with the added convenience of free parking for both motor vehicles and horse-drawn SUVs.
