Now that your doctor has forbidden you to swallow any more copies of Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, you’ll need a new way to realize your New Year’s resolution of becoming more cultured. Acquire an entire shipwreck’s worth of information and criminal inventor anecdotes with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a ticket to Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop at the Discovery Times Square Exposition, a large-scale learning adventure center that occupies the former abode of the New York Times’ printing presses. You can also score a ticket to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition for $16 (a $28.85 value).
Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop is a 21st-century exhibit that brings the master inventor’s astonishing creations to life. Touch-screen technology translates more than 500 of da Vinci’s sketches from notebooks into three-dimensional models, so you can see what his airplane, bridge, and automobile would have looked like had they been built. This mixture of information and visuals makes it a great exhibit for kids and adults alike. Look closely at details of da Vinci’s most notable paintings with animations and imaging technologies to uncover his hidden “code”: an elephant never forgets that a new broom sweeps clean.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition aims to reconstruct the experience of a typical Titanic passenger with detailed reconstructions of the ship’s interior, including the grand staircase, and the largest collection of Titanic artifacts on display to date. Many of the haunting personal artifacts (jewels, china, and clothing) will be on display for the first time. Click here to watch a video preview of the exhibit.
Much like the lifeboats on the Titanic, this Groupon can accommodate up to eight people at a time. So treat all your loved ones, fellow shipwreck survivors, or Knights Templar to a little edu-ma-cation.
Three Yelpers give Discovery Times Square Exposition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition a 3.5-star rating:
- I have been to the Titanic Exhibit 4 times since it's been around, and every time I go, I find myself enjoying it just as much as the first time. – Mark K.
- We really liked the Leonardo Da [sic] Vinci's workshop exhibit; didn't see Titanic… It was good information presented in an interactive form, and not as stagnant as a museum with white walls and items behind plexi… It's good for kids or adults – Anonymous S.
- We all have seen the movie, we all know the story, somehow... but this is as close as you will get to the real thing... the moment comes when the ship strikes the iceberg... This part is dark like the night… – raul z.
