After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two adult admissions to the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine (up to a $20 value).

Once a Victorian-era hotel, the Lightner Museum—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—now houses an in-depth collection of art and artifacts from that very generation. Relics in categories such as Science and Industry and Music cover three floors of the intricately architected building, designed in Spanish Renaissance style by the same duo of visionaries behind the New York Public Library. A carved and gilded neo-classical rocking chair and colorful, mosaic-like Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps provide insight into the daily lives of Victorian citizens, while 19th-century paintings and statues showcase the artistic inspiration of the era as well as its curious fashions, such as wearing Santa Claus hats year-round.

Lightner Museum

With an in-depth collection of Victorian-era art and artifacts, Lightner Museum could find no better setting to house its works than the former Alcazar Hotel, built in 1887. Relics cover three floors of the intricately architected building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designed in Spanish-Renaissance style by the visionaries behind the New York Public Library. Inside the magnificent lobby, whitewashed pillars connect high ceilings bordered by intricate plastered molds with amaranthine-hued mosaic floors.

Wander into the Science and Industry room for views of a taxidermied crocodile suspended from the ceiling, mingling among cases filled with statuettes and antique globes. Moving into neighboring galleries, a carved and gilded neoclassical rocking chair and colorful, mosaic-like Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps provide insight into the daily lives of Victorian citizens. Other 19th-century paintings and statues showcase the era's artistic inspiration as well as its curious fashions, such as wearing Santa Claus hats year-round.
