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 today’s Groupon to the Putnam Museum and IMAX Theatre in Davenport. Choose between the following options:

  • For $13, you get a museum outing for two (up to a $26 value).
  • For $26, you get a museum outing for four (up to a $52 value).<p>

The outing includes the following per person: * Add-on exhibit-hall admission ticket (up to a $3 value) * IMAX ticket, valid for either Sharks 3D or Straight Up!: Helicopters in Action (up to a $10 value, including a $1.50 service fee)<p>

Touting more than 170,000 scientific specimens, archeological artifacts, and historic documents, the 115,000-square-foot, 144-year-old Putnam Museum promotes scientific and archeological study with numerous interactive exhibits and eye-popping 3-D films projected onto a six-story IMAX screen. When exploring one of the largest museums in the Quad Cities region, visitors can step into an Egyptian tomb and use CT imagery to ogle two authentic mummies, or confront lifelike reconstructions of loping lions, majestic polar bears, and bellowing fourth-graders in the Hall of Mammals. The Uwé Warúmi: The Trading Place children’s activity area sheds light on the historic relationships between Native Iowan tribes and European settlers, whereas Mi Casa Nueva: QC Mexican Heritage—one of the Putnam’s changing exhibits—explores the influence of Mexican culture on the Quad Cities region.

The Putnam’s IMAX theater rockets visitors from the dusty, two-dimensional past into the colorful, multidimensional present with gigantic projections and 100,000 watts of digital surround sound. Audiences can catch up on the day-to-day life of hammerheads, great whites, and other infamous predators in Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Sharks 3D , or watch Straight Up!: Helicopters in Action and step inside high-flying copters as they repair live wires, perform high-seas rescues, and lip sync Flight of the Bumblebees.
