Art museums were invented to hold all of the masterpieces that couldn't fit on the front of the fridge, which explains why museums today are still shaped like giant refrigerators. Admire appliance-worthy creations with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-year benefactor-level Friend membership to the Worcester Art Museum (a $200 value). This Groupon expires in one month.
Alongside its 35,000-piece collection spanning more than 50 centuries, the Worcester Art Museum leads frequent tours and hosts monthly live music, exhibition openings, and other events. Friends of the museum flex color-sensing muscles with unlimited free admission (up to a $14 value per visit), free gallery and audio tours, and four transferable one-year guest passes, good for bringing along up to three friends and idle house painters. In addition to rotating special exhibitions, the museum boasts an array of works, such as the colorful canvases of Gauguin and Cézanne, as well as paintings by Whistler, Sargent, Cassatt, and other world renowned artists.
With reciprocal privileges, friends of the Worcester Art Museum can migrate to any of 33 other art emporiums across the country to forage for edible plaster casts. A plethora of additional perks include admission to live music on 3rd Thursdays, unlimited access to 50,000 books in the museum library, member discounts on classes and in the museum cafe, and an invitation to the annual benefactor reception.
