The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on, and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we’ve come with this Groupon.

Old Salem Museums & Gardens

Old Salem Museums & Gardens whisks visitors to the cozy streets of a reconstructed 18th-century and 19th-century Moravian town that encompasses 100 restored and reclaimed buildings and expansive, pristine gardens. As they stroll through the 90-acre homage to early Americana, visitors can interact with historical interpreters, view trade demonstrations, and participate in hands-on activities. Old Salem's horticultural marvels include the Miksch Garden—a living illustration of Moravian subsistence farming—and the Family Gardens of Salt Street, which demonstrate the innovative practice of seed saving. In addition to year-round attractions, special exhibits rotate through town, celebrating momentous occasions, and notable people. After traversing the grounds, visitors can peruse souvenirs at a number of gift shops or walk into Winkler’s Bakery for a piece of renowned Moravian sugar cake.
