Today's Groupon is good for membership to the Indiana State Museum in White River State Park. Choose one of the following options:
- $24 for an individual premier membership, which includes year-round admission for you and one guest, plus one $7 Museum Bucks certificate (a $49 value)
- $29 for a family membership, which includes year-round admission for two adults and their children 21 and under, plus two $7 Museum Bucks certificates (a $59 value)
The Indiana State Museum unites artistic, scientific, and cultural exhibits to give visitors an immersive education on the state and its history. Peruse three stories of permanent galleries—such as Enterprise Indiana, highlighting Indiana-made products from the '20s through the '50s with a 100-foot assembly line—that collectively tell the story of Indiana from its earliest beginnings in the newly formed earth through its awkward teenage years and into the present day. Glimpse ephemeral temporary exhibitions, such as the upcoming Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, starting September 25 ($10 members, $17 nonmembers), before they evaporate into a cloud of knowledge-rich vapor. Catch a flick at the on-site IMAX theater for a view of a big screen that makes other big screens seem comically misnamed, or come by during a special event to witness Indiana history as it unfolds. Even the museum's structure itself, built from Indiana materials such as limestone, steel, and glass by native Indiana carpenter ants, functions as an exhibit, its walls studded with icons from each of the state's 92 counties.
In addition to laughing off admission fees, all museum members receive the kind of special treatment normally afforded to movie stars and international Yahtzee champions, including 10% off purchases from the museum store, discounted rates for additional admission tickets, reduced prices for the IMAX theater, and invitations to special events. Members can also take advantage of the Indiana State Museum's participation in the Association of Science-Technology Centers' Travel Passport Program, which guarantees complimentary or reduced-fare admission and extra smiles at more than 300 other institutions around the world.
Of course the fine print....
