History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant. Admire what history has taught us thus far with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get one household membership to the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison (a $60 value). A household membership includes historical-society benefits for two adults and accompanying children under age 18 for one year.

The Wisconsin Historical Society preserves the knowledge, artifacts, and historical sites amassed over Wisconsin's tenure as a territory and state. Peruse the hallowed halls of history with free admission to the Wisconsin Historical Museum, whose ongoing exhibit Odd Wisconsin collects such curiosities as a 7-foot bowie knife once used by Andre the Giant to carve his initials onto passing aircraft. Members also receive half off admission to the society's historical sites, such as First Capitol and the Wade House, an 1844 settlement home established to make the wilderness look less rustic. Additional membership benefits include an annual subscription to the Wisconsin Magazine of History, 10 percent off online and museum purchases (including genealogical records and historic-image prints), and six issues of the society newsletter Columns, which, ironically, double as columns for a gerbil palace when rolled up. Also included in this deal is half-priced admission to Old World Wisconsin, a vivid recreation of farmers and settlers acting out historically accurate activities like blacksmithing, running a general store, and firing up the windmill's flux capacitor.
