After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get up to five admissions to Old Florida Museum in St. Augustine (up to a $55 value). Children ages two and younger are admitted for free.

Boasting reincarnations of the Spanish-built Fort Menendez and the Timucuan village of Seloy, Old Florida Museum invites groups to explore Floridian history with interactive exhibits and period guides. A host of oldish structures—including traditional houses —unveil glimpses into an era yet to discover Mad Libs, and knowledgeable reenactors help guests learn about the lifestyles of the state's 16th-century inhabitants as they wander around. Throughout the foray, visitors can earn ducados, either by performing chores, wagering on games, or finding a cure for smallpox, and then redeem them within the villages and at the museum's gift shop for select items. The general store brims with merchandise, including handcrafted works by local blacksmiths and carpenters.

Old Florida Museum

Though most museums instruct with glass cases and placards, Old Florida Museum wants you to live the experiences of its indigenous populations and settlers firsthand. During its hands-on program, guests explore Florida's history of year 1585 beginning with the Timucua Indians. In the recreated Village of Seloy, they can learn about corn grinding, dug-out canoe making, and Indian tools before visitors encounter Fort Menendez and discover how early settlers lived by dipping candles, weaving, and woodworking.

Along this trek through time, patrons can earn ducados—tokens which are good for park games and select gift shop items—by completing chores and activities. Skilled hagglers can also trade their ducados with other patrons or museum workers searching for the fountain of youth.
