After declaring their career fields in second grade, today's astronauts have found that, like most jobs or gravity-defying feats, the paperwork is exhausting. Explore the outer limits without developing a hand cramp with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two adult general-admission tickets (a $24 value) to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium. A general-admission ticket includes museum entrance and one show at the planetarium. As an added bonus, present today's Groupon at the gift shop during your visit for 10% off all purchases.
The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium hosts a bevy of actual aircrafts, hands-on exhibits, and displays highlighting the high points in aerial travel and discovery. The Space Maneuvering Unit gives folks a feel for what it’s like to operate in the weightlessness of outer space, with such workday tasks as laser target practice and wrangling evil sentient computers. Star-searchers and skywalkers alike can push a button to run an 18-cylinder radial engine or marvel at the same type of fighter jet that Tom Cruise spun in Top Gun. At the planetarium's ESky Theater, multi-media displays, such as the currently showing Extreme Planets, take viewers on computer-animated journeys through space and time, past a multitude of stars, planets, satellites, and cosmic roadside photo-ops like the biggest ball of interstellar yarn. BIG show audiences can voyage into the farthest observable reaches of the universe and return to Tulsa with minimal shuttle lag. Check out the planetarium's main page for a schedule of each month's shows.
Must redeem in one visit. The museum is closed on Mondays and most major holidays.
