Victorian architectural movements were filled with quaint idiosyncrasies, from Queen Anne’s complex Dutch gables to the Arts and Craft Movement’s staircases made entirely of old popsicle sticks. Exult in another era’s eccentricities with today's Groupon: for $7, you get admission for two to the Reitz Home Museum (a $15 value). The Reitz Home Museum offers discounted rates for students and children 12 years old and under that are lower than the value of today’s Groupon.

A quintessential example of Second Empire architecture, the Victorian–era Reitz House enchants guests with a glimpse of bygone American culture. Built in 1871 as the home to lumber baron John Augustus Reitz, the immaculately maintained manor lures guests with antique luxuries including period furniture, hand-painted ceilings, and steam-powered Nintendos. French gilt chandeliers illuminate hand-laid wood parquet floors and marble fireplaces, and stained-glass windows cast multihued mosaics on the ground in the afternoon. The old carriage house holds the museum's gift shop and visitors' center, where themed mementos await visitors commemorating first visits or last Jane Austen dissertations. Scholars also lead one-hour group tours starting at the visitors' center, guiding guests into the least known nooks of Reitz history.
