Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling into manholes. Reward the most overworked sense with today's visually stimulating Groupon: for $48, you get a one-year family membership—which covers up to two adults in the same household and four children, or three adults and three children—to The Wildlife Experience (an $80 value).
The Wildlife Experience, one of the country's more aptly named museums, offers guests a chance to encounter members of various animal kingdoms and habitat democracies through an uncommon combination of interactive exhibits, natural history, fine art, and documentary films. The family membership gets up to six family members a personalized membership card that grants unlimited general admission and a bevy of other perks. Members get discounts, exclusive events, guest passes, and much more, all of which are listed here.
Once inside, explore a variety of permanent and not-so-permanent exhibits, such as the new Globeology. This three-dimensional jaunt takes visitors through biomes from Wild Colorado to the barren, WiFi-less tundra. National Geographic's Crittercam, meanwhile, gives visitors eyewitness access to the peculiar habits of, among other creatures, emperor penguins and leatherback turtles, offering young guests unprecedented insight into what it's like to be a bird aristocrat who can't fly, or the one reptile who makes up for its legendary lethargy by dressing like Fonzie.
The Wildlife Experience seeks to instill respect for all habitats and wildlife, and inspire future conservationists through education and interactive entertainment. Excellent for family bonding sessions that don't involve welding board games together, The Wildlife Experience provides authentic adventures through indoor ecosystems.
Membership is valid for one year from activation, and memberships must be activated by December 31, 2010. Current members may use this Groupon to extend their membership by one year from their current expiration date.
