If life is just a bowl of cherries, then bowling is a life of launching 12-pound cherry-flavored gum balls. Marvel at the history of life's sweetest pastime with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two admissions to the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame in Arlington (up to a $19 value). Children ages 3 and under are admitted free to the museum.

Named one of Arlington’s top attractions by Trip Advisor, the International Bowling Museum preserves and displays a unique collection celebrating 5,000 years of bowling and pays tribute to the sport's legendary Hall of Famers. Tour the expansive exhibits and learn about bowling’s inventors and early advocates, such as the ancient Egyptians and King Henry VIII, whose marriage to Anne Boleyn notoriously soured after discovering she failed to pick up a spare while playing mixed doubles. The Innovations exhibit, which hosts life-size replicas of players, touch-screen kiosks, interactive games, and a functioning bowling lane, teaches visitors about the sport’s evolution, and the Future display teleports alley aficionados into the museum’s fantastical vision of things to come, including computerized coaches and retinal scans to get nachos from the snack bar.

Ooh and aah while wandering through the Hall of Fame and marveling at the meteoric careers of legendary pin pounders, such as Gary Dickinson, Billy Hardwick, and Wayne Zahn, replete with rare photographs and vintage film clips of bowlers past. Commemorate the pedagogical pilgrimage by purchasing a keepsake keychain or a cardboard cutout of the Dude at the museum’s Spare Partz gift shop.

Very interactive, innovative and informative. Great time! Loved the bowling game at the end.

I got this thinking I would take my kids this summer, we ended up going on a rainy day in September. My husband was hesitant to go at first, but once we got there - we had our socks BLOWN OFF!! It was one of the best done museums I've ever been to. Every exhibit was interactive and fun. Adults and kids learning very interesting stuff in a fun and creative way (an my kids are 8,6,4,2)! The highlight was at the end of the museum there was a little 2 lane bowling alley were we played a quick game before leaving. Really a HIDDEN GEM in Arlington near the ballpark and six flags! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
