The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we’ve come with today’s Groupon to the three museums at Union Station. Choose from the following options:

Rebuilt in 1924 after a devastating fire, Union Station houses three distinct history museums within its Spanish Colonial Revival–style walls. While strolling through Utah State Railroad Museum, guests can examine interactive displays and artifacts illustrating the construction of the transcontinental railroad. The John M. Browning Firearms Museum provides an inside look at Browning’s original pistol inventions, which include single-shot rifles and gas-powered machine guns. And in the Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum, engine revvers cruise past a 1929 Packard and other vintage transportation devices, including a dinosaur-drawn carriage.
