By studying ancient texts, museum curators often uncover an author’s secret struggle to render cursive capitals or prop up his ice cream cone in the spine’s fold while working. Study the habits of ancient writers with today’s Groupon to Lost and Found: The Secrets of Archimedes at The Walters Art Museum. Choose between the following options:

  • For $10, you get admission for two (up to a $20 value).
  • For $18, you get admission for four (up to a $40 value).

The Walters Art Museum’s collection of priceless paintings, pre-dynastic Egyptian pieces, and Greek sculptures bestow attendants with an expansive overview of artistic expression through time. In 1229 AD, a number of Archimedes’s works were erased and overwritten by Johannes Myrones when he was hurriedly scribbling down a grocery list. Through meticulous preservation techniques, a team of scientists from The Walters Art Museum have recovered the lost formulas over the span of an 11-year adventure that patrons can experience by visiting six interactive learning stations and two galleries of gathered materials. The exhibit culminates in a presentation to discuss the future of art conservation, including topics such as how nanotechnology could revolutionize silver preservation or restore finger paintings that were trapped behind a refrigerator.

Though general admission to The Walters Art Museum is free, special exhibits have an entrance fee, making today’s Groupon the best deal available.
