Spaceship pilots are bombarded by myriad distractions, including supernovas, zero-gravity toll booths, and provocative Martian billboards. Pay homage to female space pioneers with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get one family membership to the International Women's Air & Space Museum at Burke Lakefront Airport (a $50 value).
For more than 25 years, the International Women’s Air & Space Museum has tickled intellects with exhibits dedicated to the women who defied societal conventions to explore the sky and outersky. Current exhibits showcase the life and times of the infamous Amelia Earhart, the paper-helicopter-building abilities of Katharine Wright (sister to the Wright brothers), and the tremendous courage shown by the 39 female Air Force service pilots that gave their lives in WWII. Hurry in to catch the IWASM’s exhibit 100 Ohio Women in Air & Space, on display until January 2.
Though museum admission is free, members are entitled to a bevy of high-flying perks and privileges such as informative newsletters, invitations to special events, and discounted admission to IWASM partner museums across the continent. Members also get a discount at the museum gift shop and online store, which is filled with books, souvenirs, and more. Family memberships include full privileges for two adults and all household children and mammalian pets under 18, plus a subscription to the quarterly IWASM Kids Club newsletter. Launch your offspring’s curiosity with discounted registration for all IWASM educational programs and classes. The annual Family Members Private Party rewards families for their generous contributions with snacks, drinks, and rides in Amelia Earhart’s time-traveling hang glider.
