Learn from the past with today's Groupon to the Museum of South Texas History in downtown Edinburg. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a one-year family membership (a $50 value).
- For $17, you get a one-year individual membership (a $35 value).
Explore the storied past of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico inside the Museum of South Texas History, which boasts an impressive set of permanent exhibits, including a life-size mammoth fossil replica and a collection of ancient tools, Spanish colonial treasure, and battlefield relics that paint a picture of the Rio Grande's past. Both membership packages grant you free admission, newsletters, plus a 10% discount at the museum store, discounted admission to regular museum events and classes, invitations to special museum events, and bragging ammo against nonmembers-only jacket wearers. Opt for the family membership to get all the members of your household in on the educational action.
