After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon to the Titanic Museum. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get two admission tickets (up to an $8 value), plus a $10 credit to the gift shop (up to an $18 total value).
- For $13, you get four admission tickets (up to a $16 value), plus a $10 credit to the gift shop (up to a $26 total value).
At the Titanic Museum, visitors wade into an expansive ocean of artifacts, including many donated by survivors, as well as models, movie memorabilia, and antiques that provide a firsthand look at the historic tragedy. A sketch of the iceberg drawn by Fred Fleet, the ship’s lookout, joins a plethora of one-of-a-kind objects, such as a swatch of a first-class stateroom’s carpet and letters written on Titanic stationery. A nine-foot model of the ship and a functioning model of the ship’s engines reveal inner workings, with the museum’s knowledgeable staff members answering burning questions.
In the gift shop, a desktop Titanic brings adventure to the everyday ($6.95), and an ocean-liner pin lends a dignified air to any aspiring captain’s T-shirt or polka-dotted glitter dickie ($8). Or use the store credit toward a larger purchase, such as the Titanic-era custom-made pearl jewelry set, which lavishes necks with iridescent shimmer and beautifully recited ship facts ($144), or a CD of the actual music played aboard the ship.
