The Lawrence Hall of Science - University of California Berkeley: $25 for a Science-Museum Outing with 3-D Movie Tickets for Four at The Lawrence Hall of Science (Up to $64 Value)

Science is more than just a class you had to take in high school; it's also what the people who taught those classes do in their free time. Enrich yourself with this Groupon.

$25 for a Science-Museum Outing for Four (Up to $64 Value)

  • One-day admission for four (up to a $48 value)
  • Four 3-D movie passes (a $12 value)

Kids climb a canyon wall, snowboard down a mountain, and glide among the stars on a "flycycle" within the Run, Jump, Fly & Spin exhibit, testing their balance and coordination while learning about the laws of motion. In the Ingenuity Lab, guests design and build engineering innovations, such as wind turbines and sound machines. After comparing whiskers with the zoological residents of the Animal Discovery Room, families head to the 3-D theater for films such as The Last Reef or Titans of the Ice Age.

This Groupon also entitles customers to a special on museum membership if membership is purchased on the same day that the Groupon is redeemed.

The Lawrence Hall of Science

Established in 1968 in honor of Ernest Orlando Lawrence, UC Berkeley's first Nobel laureate, The Lawrence Hall of Science aims to inspire the scientists and innovators of the future. Their hands-on exhibits allow children and adults to see and touch a fascinating variety of displays and projects. The animated, interactive Science On a Sphere globe, for example, uses actual scientific data to depict the expanding wave patterns of tsunamis and the surface of Mars. To learn more about seismic activity, guests head to the Forces That Shape the Bay outdoor park to explore erosion and the geology of the Bay Area. Kids can climb atop a life-size model whale or through the double helix of a huge DNA sculpture, or work with UC Berkeley students and staff to design and build a prototype in the Ingenuity Lab.

The museum also sparks imaginations with an interactive planetarium and the National Geographic 3D Theater. Its affiliation with the university makes it an ideal spot for educational camps and classes, as well as community events, including a robotics competition.
