The earliest museums had little history to draw on, and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we’ve come with today’s Groupon to the Museum of Tolerance. Choose between the following options:
- For $22, you get a one-year individual membership (a $45 value).
- For $32, you get a one-year dual or family membership (a $65 value). <p>
Each year, more than 250,000 guests visit the Museum of Tolerance (MOT), a human-rights laboratory and education center that promotes tolerance and understanding through historical and contemporary examinations of historical happenings including the Holocaust and the American civil-rights movement. Interactive exhibits such as the Holocaust Section lead visitors to a re-created Nazi-dominated Europe, where they can see and hear stories of Holocaust victims and survivors during a 70-minute presentation. At the Tolerancenter, museum-goers can learn more about the civil-rights movement along with contemporary human-rights violations at seven different exhibits. On strolls through Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves, guests follow the genealogical journeys of a diverse roster of celebrities, delving into the backgrounds of poet Dr. Maya Angelou, actor Billy Crystal, guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana, and the pink ghost from Pac-Man.
Museum membership grants cardholders unlimited free admission to the MOT, 10% off at the MOT’s store, advance notice of exhibitions and special events, and a free DVD of the award-winning documentary I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal. Groupon customers who opt for the dual or family memberships extend unlimited free admission to a spouse, partner, children 17 and younger, and imaginary friends fewer than three stories high.
Museum of Tolerance
In the late 1980s, the Simon Wiesenthal Center gathered top museum leaders and representatives to discuss new ways of teaching tolerance to a younger generation. Since 1993, the Museum of Tolerance has encouraged visitors to contemplate the effects of intolerance with interactive exhibits on the Holocaust as well as present-day discrimination. The guided, 70-minute sound-and-light presentation at the Holocaust exhibit recreates Nazi-occupied Europe, and the Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves exhibit showcases diversity through the personal histories of several American celebrities, including Billy Crystal and Carlos Santana. Some of the museum's features also examine more recent issues, such as the Tolerancenter, which highlights the struggles of the civil-rights movement and enlightens museum goers on contemporary human-rights violations. The museum also hosts special exhibitions, live testimonies from Holocaust survivors, and youth programs, such as anti-bullying workshops.
