What You'll Get
Knowledge can be a frightening word, particularly when it’s listed under cause of death and followed by three exclamation points. Overcome your fear of facts with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for two admissions to the Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision exhibit (up to a $50 value)
- $40 for four admissions to the Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision exhibit (up to a $100 value)<p>
Both options include access to the museum’s permanent exhibits as well.
Housing the renowned McFerrin Collection, the exhibit showcases the extravagance of late 19th- and early 20th-century Imperial Russia. Most notable are two Fabergé eggs: one of the famed eggs made for Alexander Kelch, and the Imperial Diamond Trellis Egg, which glows with a shell made of pale-green jadeite studded with rose-cut diamonds. Also included among the 350+ artifacts are Empress Joséphine’s tiara and several Imperial presentation boxes.<p>

About Houston Museum of Natural Science
Seven days a week, the Houston Museum of Natural Science cultivates knowledge with interactive exhibits that shuttle minds into such far-flung realms as tropical rainforests and outer space. Permanent exhibit halls house everything from the skeletons of Diplodocus in the recently expanded Morian Hall of Paleontology to artifacts from ancient Egypt and the Americas.
Housed inside three stories of glass, the museum's Cockrell Butterfly Center habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around the globe, which frolic around a 50-foot waterfall, and flutter through exotic plants. Visitors can also gaze skyward in the Burke Baker Planetarium, which casts more than 10 daily shows with curve-mirror projection technology. Eyes marvel at the planetarium's 30'x18' full-dome digital theater, capable of transporting families to the aurora borealis in the Arctic Circle or to the nougat-flavored center of a black hole.
