What You'll Get
If a woman's guess overrode a man's certainty, then history would chronicle less time on battlefields and more time at door-buster sales. Discover why women have often known best with today's Groupon: for $29, you get either a dual or family annual membership to The Women's Museum: An Institute for The Future (up to a $70 value).
In association with the Smithsonian Institution, The Women's Museum: An Institute for The Future stands as the original U.S. museum solely dedicated to women's history. A dual membership grants two people unlimited, year-round access, and a family membership ensures entry for an entire brood. Meander through exhibits that spin the story of the nation's fiercest females who spearheaded advancement in the workplace, on the home front, and at gas stations, where they demanded their husbands stop and ask for directions. Pop in for laughs with 13 Funny Women of comedy, a popular exhibit that permanently prizes the punch line prowess of Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, and Wanda Sykes, to name a few, through an on-site video review. Others may devote artistic discoveries to special exhibits, such as the forthcoming works of Loïs Mailou Jones, opening on May 22. Here, X chromosome-savvy history buffs explore vibrant paintings that address tenuous times of gender and racial discrimination during the waning days of the Harlem Renaissance.
The Women's Museum has been commemorating the creative and cunning achievements of women since its opening in September 2000. A rotating roster of traveling exhibits also keeps hunger for historic knowledge continually fed, even if it claims to be on a diet.
