Today's Groupon breaks into the home of the Braves without setting off the security alarm. For $10, you get to explore the innermost dugouts of Turner Field and the Braves Museum & Hall of Fame. You'll also snag a Braves hat and receive 25% off Braves apparel at the Braves Clubhouse Store at CNN Center (up to a $27 total value). Tickets are valid for adults or children.
Ball fans can rope their history-buff buds into the weekday fun with the rich perspective the museum offers, and math-minded engineers will appreciate the construction of the stunning ballpark in addition to the physics of the game. The hour-long tour starts at the Braves Museum & Hall of Fame, where more than 600 Braves artifacts and photographs tell the story of the team from its Boston beginnings to an unprecedented championship run in Atlanta. Behold the 1995 World Series trophy, Hank Aaron's famous home run ball and bat, and the old ballpark's dugout bench. Next, you'll tour Coca-Cola Sky Field, Scouts Alley, the broadcast booth, a luxury suite, the press box, the clubhouse, and the dugout (route and schedule are subject to availability).
Turner Field, which served as the Olympic stadium for the 1996 summer games, is an Atlanta institution unrivaled for its savory blend of technology and entertainment. It has 500 TV monitors, a more than 50-ton video board with five million LEDs, and a 40-foot tomahawk choppin' Chick-Fil-A cow.
- Take time after your tour to explore the museum that commemorates 131 years of Braves history. From its beginning in 1871 in Boston, through Milwaukee, and to Atlanta, the team is the oldest continuously running franchise in major league history. So don't feel awkward about gawking at the 1995 World Series trophy, the ball and bat Hank Aaron used for his famous home run, and the dugout bench from the old stadium. Everyone who visits can't get enough of these great artifacts. – Annette Thompson, Southern Living

The history of today's Atlanta Braves traces back to 1876 in Boston, where the team played as the Red Stockings. In the more than 100 years since, the club lived like a nomadic tribe, claiming two World Series titles in separate cities before finally landing in Atlanta in 1966. There, they found reason to settle down, winning an unprecedented 14 consecutive division titles, as well as another World Series in 1995. Throughout the years, many of baseball's all-time greats have donned the Braves uniform, including Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, and Cy Young. Opened in 1997, Turner Field serves as the club's home turf, relaying the action on a 29'x38' BravesVision video board as a 27' neon tomahawk menaces visiting players and vegetables alike.
