actually this is for Groupon because the survey makes it sound like I went to MOWT this summer 2012 and I used a Groupon coupon for MOWT more like 2010?? it was one of my earliest Groupons. So this survey is a bit outdated. I was familiar with MOWT for several years before the Groupon, mostly used it to allow some friends with young children an opportunity to go to MOWT because otherwise their finances would not allow, and as a fun joint family putting for the two groups of us to go together and hang out. As for MOWT, well it started as Dr. Jon K.....(forgot last name)'s personal collection, so part of it years ago just seemed like just humoring him for showing off stuff he liked to collect (as we had also been to Egypt and to some of the other world places that he brought his souvenirs from). But on the other hand, he did get some pretty cool stuff that I would never have thought to collect, and having actually BEEN to Egypt, and having actually BEEN to the Cairo Museum etc, we can believe that he did get some pretty good stuff? So it's always fun to check in every few years and see what improvements have been made since the earliest years when it was part of the "show and tell" exhibit at Century II long before MOWT moved into the old Farm & Art Market Building. I'd recommend the trip if you've never been to MOWT, even though part of it, for lack of endowment funding etc, comes off as a "homemade science project" and not as slickly professional as say, Smithsonian Institute (which we have also seen several of the museums there in Washington DC etc.).

Better maps are needed. I was a bit lost with the one provided.

What You'll Get


History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant. Admire what history has taught us thus far with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get admission (up to a $9 value) to the Museum of World Treasures in Old Town.

The Museum of World Treasures lets adults ($9 value), seniors ($8 value), and kids 4–12 ($7 value) brush up on their history with three floors of exciting exhibits and artifacts. After striding into the museum’s brick-faced edifice, stay-at-home time travelers are whisked to the first floor, where they can Lindy-Hop through the Ancient Civilizations gallery, bring Egyptian mummies back to life both figuratively and literally, touch a 4.5-ton piece of the Berlin Wall, and take turns riding a 40-foot-long T. rex skeleton named Ivan. On the second floor, explore the President’s Gallery—which displays interesting items such as a lock of George Washington’s hair and the signatures of the first 43 American presidents—as well as jewelry, swords, beer koozies, and signatures from European royalty dating back to the 12th century. The third floor plays host to a swarm of sports artifacts and pop culture treasures such as the pearls Lucy wore to greet Ricky at the door in an episode of I Love Lucy, and the pitchfork used by the Scarecrow to kill Frankenstein in The Wizard of Oz. The American Frontier exhibit, meanwhile, includes a 34-star flag that was accidentally produced when the fledgling country was still composed of 63 states.

Originally situated downtown when it opened in 2001, the Museum of World Treasures eventually moved to its current location at the Farm and Art Market in nearby Old Town, where it labors to keep an unforgettable wormhole to the past open for curious visitors. Along with your Groupon, make sure you bring along your museum map to prevent getting accidentally locked in at night and having to suffer through a bland Hollywood family movie.

Tax not included. Children three and under get in free.
