Without a proper understanding of history, humans would likely repeat the same mistakes, such as searching for gold in Louisiana or covering their wagons in bear pelts with the bear still attached. Help prevent unneeded human follies with today’s Groupon to the Lane County Historical Society & Museum. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get a single membership for one year (up to a $25 value).
• For $25, you get a family membership for one year (a $50 value).
The Lane County Historical Society & Museum invites visitors to fan the flames of curiosity for a year of exhibit-exploration with memberships for the family or a single adult. Exhibits transport the historically curious through vast leaps of time, allowing them to jump from a well-preserved Oregon Trail wagon from 1850, to a restored VW bus from the 1960s, which once emanated the sounds of guitar-based polka music prevalent in the mid-20th century. In addition to free admission, invitations to members-only events, and previews of new exhibits, members will also enjoy subscriptions to the tri-annual Lane County Historian and the quarterly "Lane County Historical Society Newsletter," further cementing conversation starters at the office water-well.
Burgeoning historians will also benefit from a 10% discount on research requests at the archives and special collections, a rich treasure trove of archival materials that includes rarities such as original town manuscripts and Martin Van Buren's rookie card. Additionally, the museum store grants members a 10% discount on books and old-fashioned toys.
