Exploring a museum is like exploring a new neighbour's home: it's fascinating, educational, and more thrilling when a Beware of Man-Eating Statue sign hangs on the door. Investigate interior surprises with today's Groupon to THEMUSEUM downtown. Choose between two options:
- For $30, you get a dual membership, good for two adults and any children under three years old (a $60 value)
- For $60, you get a family membership, good for two adults and up to four children (a $120 value)
THEMUSEUM scours the globe for engaging cultural content in order to plant quality, interactive experiences firmly into fertile minds of the community. Upon entering with unlimited general admission, visitors may explore permanent exhibitions, which abound with experiential curiosities such as an x-ray-light table, an electricity maze, and an urban streetscape. A membership includes elite access to celebratory members-only events and occasional entry to neighbouring showcases, such as those at the Art Gallery of Ontario or inside the dreams of house cats. Enjoy a 10 per cent discount while feasting upon locally sourced culinary delights at TheMuseum Café, which doubles as the museum's gift shop and stage for periodic-table-based monologues.
THEMUSEUM’s vision—“To awe, inspire and enlighten”—is evident to its visitors as soon as they traverse the adult- and child-sized doorways. Once inside, they begin their journey through the exhibition halls in front of the vibrant plants protruding from the Living Wall, whose purpose is to clean the air and cool the interior of the multilevel facility. Along with permanent exhibitions, THEMUSEUM also hosts temporary exhibits; past installations have explored the pop art innovations of Andy Warhol's Factory, the interplay between art and electronics, and the experimental brushstrokes of painter Tom Thomson. In addition, THEMUSEUM is also a destination for global travelling exhibits, having played host to travelling international blockbusters like Our Body: The Universe Within and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
