Visiting a museum, like vacationing inside a black hole, allows guests to step into another world. Enter a new realm with today's Groupon to the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art in Elmhurst. Choose between two options:
• For $4, you get two adult admission tickets to the museum (up to an $8 value; museum admission is free on Fridays, and on all days for active armed forces members).
• For $15, you get a one-year individual membership (a $30 value).
Named for its passionate stone-carving founder, the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art showcases more than 200 jade, hard stone, mineral, and gemstone carvings and artifacts from around the globe. Reward eyes for their years of hard work with a jaunt through the museum's collection of elegant Chinese jade artwork, 20 wildlife dioramas, and reenactments of boulder mating rituals. Knowledgeable geologists and gemologists stand at the ready to answer questions about the art of stone cutting, rare minerals, or how to tame a disobedient rock.
Museum members receive free admission and, like showoffy abdominal muscles, can bring a six-pack of guests for free at each visit. Discounts at the gift shop and at museum events expand visitors’ horizons, and invitations to special programs provide the chance to mingle with well-known ivory slabs.
