Learning about humans' past survival methods is instrumental in recovering your keys from the crest of a future butte. Discover the power of history with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a friends and family pass for up to four people to Harvard's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, located on the east side of campus (up to a $36 value). Groupon buyers also get free admission to the neighboring Harvard Museum of Natural History.

Founded in 1866, the Peabody Museum is one of the oldest anthropological museums in the world, with an in-depth collection of artifacts spanning prehistory to present. You'll learn about the evolution of cultures through a variety of current exhibits. Head into the Pacific Islands Hall to find carvings, shields, and shadow puppets from Hawaii, Micronesia, and other islands, and get a dose of colonial life in the early Harvard Yard with Digging Veritas, where you can scope out framed papyrus LSAT scores. The Wiyohpiyata display treats guests to distinct scents, motions, ambient sounds, and more to evoke the character of original 19th-century Lakota drawings collected at Little Big Horn. Your Groupon also affords you admission to the nearby Harvard Museum of National History, where muzzled opera singers can get a glimpse of the famed Glass Flowers exhibit, a collection of more than 3,000 highly realistic glass-blown models of flowers and plants.

The Peabody Museum sits near Harvard Square's shops and restaurants, rendering it a fine hands-on academic retreat for students, an eye-opening day out for families of potters, and a convenient way to meet single Mayan mannequins.
