Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling in manholes. Give the most overworked sense a vacation with a hands-on museum experience thanks to today's Groupon: for $10, you get a family four pack at The Works in Edina, a $20 value. Up to two Groupons may be purchased per person. This Groupon is valid only for family admission and is not valid for other groups such as scouting troops, home-school events, or birthday parties.

At The Works, youngsters and families can enjoy interactive exhibits and hands-on activities that help make science and engineering interesting and fun, unlike building spaceship catapults. As a non-profit community organization, The Works focuses on inspiring interest in learning with the witch-developed trickery widely referred to as engineering. Visitors of all ages, and especially those between the ages of five and 12, can play with mechanisms, pulleys, structures, building blocks, shapes, optical technologies, imaging, and inter-dimensional portals. Some of the most popular interactive learning toys include a giant six-foot-tall zipper, a laser-light harp, and controlling robots. Additionally, families will have more time to build magnetic structures, fashion rainbow glasses, create their own lava lamps, and more, thanks to convenient summer hours that run through September 3 and keep The Works open from Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A hands-on approach to learning doesn’t have to involve binding geometry textbooks or communicating only through signals to bunt. Make it up to the fam for that long road trip to see The World's Flattest Empty Field with today's Groupon to The Works.

Reviews

Though patrons of The Works have not written many reviews, the hands-on museum has garnered a fair amount of press, including features by About.com, WCCO.com, Travels with Children, and Sun newspapers.

  • The Works's plan seems to be, well, working. The museum was busy with children were playing happily when we visited, proof that science can be interesting to everyone when it is accessible and not locked up in stuffy laboratories. – About.com
  • From exploring the tradeoff of torque and speed, to the reaction of chemical components and their impact on the structure of things, visitors have fun while also finding out how things work. – WCCO.com
  • As a parent, I like that the exhibits are all in one area. My kids can do whatever they want to do, and I can have my eye on all of them at once. – Travels with Children
