A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo's collection of telescopes and Benjamin Franklin's drawer full of "No, I wasn't a president" T-shirts. Take a peek inside the mind of a historic figure with this Groupon.

Before making a name for himself as a movie star and then as the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Reagan lived with his family in a rental home from 1920 to 1923. Visitors can tour the restored home, checking out Reagan's old bedroom, before heading into the gift shop where they can purchase T-shirts, books, and postcards.
Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home
The Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home lets you get a true feel for the 40th president's life as a child. The restored home was originally built in 1891 and was home to Ronald Reagan and his family in the early 1920s. Visitors can take guided tours of the home to see young Reagan’s bedroom and find old the secret hiding place for his pennies. A visitor center contains four rooms of photos and a display of the Reagan presidential timeline, and a gift shop sells memorabilia and T-shirts. Outside, a flower and vegetable garden showcases heritage plants, and check out Bessy, the refurbished Model T Ford that's not unlike the car Reagan's family would have driven.
