A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo’s solar-system bed sheets and Lincoln’s vast collection of presidential action figures. Take a peek inside the minds of historic figures with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get two admissions to the Marston House Museum & Gardens (up to a $16 value). Tucked in the tree-dappled grounds of northern Balboa Park, the Marston House's brick-lined walls encase the lush vision of local philanthropists George White and Anna Gunn Marston. Guided tours lead guests through ornate corridors to learn how the house highlights elegant motifs of arts-and-crafts architecture without resorting to popsicle-stick furniture or macaroni wallpaper. Meanwhile, the surrounding greenery showcases colorful geraniums and the roiling verdant cascades of the Marston House's traditional English garden provide pensive respite for foot-weary wayfarers.

Customer Reviews

I didn't know about the Marston house before seeing the Groupon. We loved the tour and already recommended going to family members. What a wonderful place!

My friend and I had a great time learning about the Marston House and San Diego history. The lady who exchanged my Groupon for tickets was friendly and helpful.

The tour far exceeded my expectations, our guide, Brett I believe, was phenomenal. As a native of San Diego I learned so much, much of which I was surprised I had not heard more about, especially in school. Highly recommend!
