Unlike soporific grandparents and television documentaries about tube socks, the artifacts in a museum often tell interesting stories of important historical events. Tune in to the past with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-year family membership to the KU Natural History Museum, located on the University of Kansas campus (up to a $40 value). Household memberships are normally priced at $35 for University of Kansas students, faculty, and staff, who can also receive individual membership for free.

Part of the Biodiversity Institute, whose collection includes 8 million plant and animal specimens and 1.2 million archeological artifacts, the KU Natural History Museum inflates the brains of fact-seeking visitors with the help of diverse exhibits and regular programming. Permanent installations include a bird’s-eye view of scientific evolutionary research in Explore Evolution, as well as a glimpse at insect behavior in Bugtown, in which live specimens go about their six-legged business safe from their most dangerous natural predators, flyswatters. Considered one of the museum's strengths, the North America exhibit doles out multiple floors of dioramic re-creations of American wildlife from wolves to mountain goats, sure to please taxidermists of all ages. Featured through spring of 2012, Evolve! Adapt to Survive displays regional artists' depictions of a famed Charles Darwin quote in the Stairwell Gallery.

In addition to yearlong admission to the museum (without paying the suggested donation), household members also qualify for a 10 percent discount at the museum’s gift shop and on museum summer camps. Members also receive free or reduced admission at 300 museums and science centers worldwide, qualifying them as experts in the event a live-dinosaur amusement park goes awry.
