History museums’ acquisitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own closets full of skeletons. Discover a body of knowledge with today’s Groupon to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Choose between the following options:

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. Housed inside three stories of glass, the butterfly habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around the globe, which frolic in a 50-foot waterfall, flutter through exotic plants, and, most amazingly, pull nickels from behind children’s ears. Admission to the butterfly center also grants visitors access to a number of other attractions, including an entomology learning center where guests can romp in a giant beehive and admire the work ethic of leaf-cutter ants.

Filled with seats that tilt toward the heavens, the Burke Baker Planetarium inspires visitors to ponder life beyond the earth’s borders. Eyes marvel at the planetarium’s 30’x18’ full-dome digital theater, which casts more than 10 daily shows with curve-mirror projection technology, mimicking the perspective at the bottom of a fishbowl big enough for a whale. Families can visit a future lunar colony during We Choose Space! or float through the Milky Way during Dark Side of the Moon, which syncs to the mystical prog-rock of Pink Floyd.

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 brachiosauruses 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.
