What You'll Get
Without museums, historical artifacts would irrevocably be lost to the sands of time, depriving future generations of the chance to learn about ancient civilizations and key-tars. Gain an appreciation for preservation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two to the Morris Museum in Morristown, open daily Wednesdays through Sundays (up to a $20 value). Admission is always free for children younger than 3, and is free for all visitors on Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Housed in a handsome Georgian-style mansion since 1963, the Morris Museum educates and delights visitors with its vast array of interdisciplinary exhibits and collections. A true polymath playground, Morris Museum’s permanent exhibits include the Mammal Gallery and the Digging Dinosaurs exhibit, where patrons are able to touch a real dino egg within a gallery dominated by painted hadrosaurs and acid-washed velociraptors of Cretaceous-era New Jersey. The permanent Musical Machines & Living Dolls collection showcases 19th century mechanisms from The Murtogh D. Guinness Collection, springing to life daily at 2 p.m. for a mechanical revue performed by a selection of melody-making automatons that include antique player-piano rolls and turn-of-the-century wind-up musical dolls.
In addition to its permanent collections, the Morris Museum currently hosts the limited engagement Jersey Rocks : A History of Rock & Roll in the Garden State exhibit, running from May 5 until September 5. This multimedia celebration of New Jersey’s unique place in rock history shines a spotlight on native sons, from Frankie Valli to Bruce Springsteen, with a collection of videos, records, concert gear, and clothing that still glistens with the glory and extra-hold hair spray of a bygone era.
