History museums' acquisitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own closets full of skeletons. Discover a body of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two adult admissions to the Race to the End of the Earth exhibit at the National Geographic Museum (up to a $16 value). The exhibit runs from May 25 to August 21. Admission for children ages 5–12 is always $4.

Race to the End of the Earth loads visitors onto the virtual, snow-capped shoulders of rival explorers—Norweigan Roald Amundsen and British Royal Navy Captain Robert Falcon Scott—as they brave extreme conditions in a race to become the first human to reach the South Pole. Keep slack-jawed drool from freezing into a dangerously sharp stalactite while filling craniums with polar particulars gleaned from 100-year-old photographs, life-like dioramas, and actual clothing and equipment used on the expedition. Museum-goers can acquaint themselves with each explorer's personality and respective plans of attack along the 1,800-mile stretch of barren ice and snow from the Ross Ice Shelf to the South Pole and back. Interactive exhibits illustrate the struggle to secure government grants, recruit investors, and ward off predatory-lending penguins.

Great exhibit and thanks so much for extending the time it was in DC!

We actually enjoyed 1001 Inventions even more than the Titanic exhibit.
