  • California Automobile Museum
    The California Automobile Museum weaves the story of the automobile's birth and development through a gleaming collection of cars that dates back to the 1880s. Guests meander through 72,000 square feet of luxury and muscle vehicles, from pre–Model T Fords and green vehicles to Lamborghinis and modern NASCAR vehicles. In addition to its permanent collection and current exhibits, the museum's displays are always changing due to donations from private collectors and the hot rod fairy, allowing visitors to see a varying display of vehicles on different visits. The museum also offers a wide variety of classes that are fun and educational, and open to both adults and children. Guests can also visit the gift shop stocked with auto-centric goodies, including car-related fine-art photography, T-shirts, kids' arts and crafts, and die-cast models of classic cars.

  • Panama Pottery
    Home to a vast inventory of beautifully crafted earthenware, Panama Pottery provides vessel-seeking visitors with a stunning spectrum of handmade local treasures and glazed, technicolored imports. Peruse the historic studio space and score an 18-inch terra-cotta fluted leg bowl ($21), sculpted by hand on the premises. Or, save yourself a plane trip and snatch up an authentic and colorful Chinese drip pot ($60 for 20?x16?), perfect for containing falling water, plants, or a smaller Chinese drip pot ($10 for 8?x9?). Today?s Groupon can also be applied to a clay or mosaic class, where artists of all abilities can learn under one of Panama?s ceramic specialists. Guests who score today?s deal will also receive a complimentary bag of potting soil, which allows plants to grow better than encasing them in amber.

  • Sacramento History Musuem
    The Sacramento History Museum recounts the narrative of Sacramento through insightful exhibitions of antiquities and accompanying anecdotes. The current offering of Gold, Greed & Speculation: The Beginnings of Sacramento City tells the tale of Sacramento?s first 50 years, delving into the birth of a city with a story much more complex than modern gold miners would have us believe. Headlining this exhibit is an interactive, computer-augmented mural, as well as more than $1 million worth of gold specimens, including a golden replica of an Olympic bronze medal that secretly contains chocolate. For a broader perspective of Sacramento, check out the Community Gallery, a chronological re-telling of events and traditions from the relics of the Nisenan and Maidu Native Americans to artifacts from modernity, such as objects and accounts from the city during World War II. The Agricultural Gallery shows how ingenious innovations in farming technology sprang from the fertile fields of the Central Valley, much like birds springing from a recently smashed cuckoo clock.

  • Verge Center for the Arts
    Comparisons to New York City's top galleries quickly arose around Verge Center for the Arts when Jesse Powell opened the nonprofit in 2009. It's easy to see why: the 6,000 square feet of exhibition space and 20-foot high ceilings houses a global array of contemporary art in various mediums, from paint and video to performance. But opening a critically acclaimed gallery was only the tip of the iceberg for Jesse. These days, the 22,000-square-foot center houses 37 studios for emergent artists, more than half of which were built by the tenants/artists themselves. Reading materials on contemporary art abound in the center's library, while an in-house lab lets community members create their own prints. Throughout the year, Verge even hosts events and classes that run the gamut from artists lectures to workshops on learning to draw via mind control.
