History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it needs to come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon for a $22 family membership to the Nevada Historical Society, ($50 value) whose headquarters are located on the northwest side of the University of Nevada, Reno campus. A one-time adult admission is $4, whereas museums-goers ages 17 and younger receive free admission. The Nevada Historical Society is closed Sunday-Tuesday.
With a yearlong family membership, patrons get free admission to all seven museums in the Nevada Division of Museums and History; invitations to exhibition openings, programs, and events; the Nevada Historical Society e-newsletter; and a 15% discount in all museum stores. The Nevada Historical Society, the state’s oldest museum, pays tribute to the hardy souls who have braved Nevada’s rugged topography and naturally occurring coin geysers over the area’s 10,000-year history. Five permanent exhibits inside the Wilbur S. Shepperson Gallery tell the intriguing tales of early Nevada natives, settlers, miners, and entertainers, while the ongoing “Unearthing Nevada’s Past” lecture series delves into a cornucopia of uncommon topics, such as divorce in Nevada and the 1919 Army Motor Transport Corp.
