History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant. Admire what history has taught us thus far with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a household membership to Rehoboth Beach Museum in Rehoboth Beach (a $35 value).
The Rehoboth Beach Museum preserves myriad artifacts exhibiting the beach community's beginnings, growth, and coastal customs. Situated in an icehouse erected in 1925, the museum showcases memorabilia reflective of the sandy region, including vintage postcards, retro bathing suits, and celebrity look-alike jellyfish. The current exhibit, Skimming the Surface, stages life on the Delaware coast with colorful surfboard and skim-board displays and educates visitors about ancient Hawaiian surfing traditions, surfing slang, and why the original pyramid-shaped surfboard did not catch on.
A household membership grants purchasers and their packs free admission to the museum, along with an e-mail newsletter, gift-shop discounts, and reduced admission to special museum events. Two yearly luncheons feature knowledgeable guest speakers, with previous territorial subjects including the Pennsylvania Railroad Clubhouse and the projected worth of Delaware on a Monopoly board.
