What You'll Get
After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a one-year general membership (a $25 value) to Rosson House Museum.
Built in 1895 for the 11th mayor of Phoenix, Dr. Roland Lee Rosson, the Victorian-style Rosson House Museum is part of the Historic Heritage Square, and an excellent example of life in Block 14 during Arizona's late territorial times. Guests can get an up-close glimpse of the 2,800-square-foot abode by taking part in a professionally guided tour. During each 30-minute excursion, visitors will absorb more than a century's worth of Victorian-style architecture and venture into each of the home's 10 rooms to look for Waldo. With a general membership, you'll also receive a subscription to the periodic newsletter, invitations to opening exhibits, and a 10% discount on purchases made at the museum gift shop.

About Rosson House Museum
A prominent surgeon and Phoenix mayor, Dr. Roland Lee Rosson commissioned his 2,800-square-foot home in 1895. Fashioned in the Eastlake style of Victorian architecture, the 10-room dwelling included five fireplaces. These days, his abode serves as Rosson House Museum, where docents lead guests on 45- to 60-minute tours of the structure's restored interior. Besides public tours five days a week, Rosson House Museum hosts frequent family activities.
