Since the beginning of time, humans have attempted to preserve their stories for future generations by painting cave walls, orating stories, and covering important figures in cement. Solidify your historical knowledge with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a family pass for up to two adults and three children to the Oldest Wooden School House in St. Augustine (up to a $19.50 value). St. Augustine residents receive free admission to the museum.

The Oldest Wooden School House transports museum-goers to the early 18th century and allows them to meander through one of the oldest schoolhouses in the United States. Built more than 200 years ago out of red cedar, wooden pegs, handmade nails, and painstakingly carved Legos, the structure acted as a homestead before becoming one of the first co-ed schools in 1788. Animatronic children and schoolmaster describe a typical classroom day, and guest students examine copies of textbooks, artifacts, and cooking utensils used in the schoolhouse. After the tour, visitors stroll through the lush gardens that wind past the kitchen, privy, and well, and blossom with tropical plants and a 250-year-old pecan tree. Groupon holders can then head to the gift shop to receive 30% off any one item.
