Though time travel can be thrilling, the slightest miscalculation can land you in revisited junior-high gym classes, Cretaceous-era potluck suppers, or on a particularly boring episode of Leave It to Beaver. Stick to historical recreations with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two admission passes (up to a $14 value) to Indiana Experience, a five-sense-stimulating exhibit at the Indiana Historical Society's Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center in downtown Indianapolis.
Indiana Experience features countless images for the historically curious to sink their peepers into and installations designed to let visitors experience life in the old days. The You Are There exhibit sends time-travelers walking among 3-D life-sized photographic recreations of scenes such as a 1924 Ford repair shop and a famous violin shop from 1914. The recreation of Robert F. Kennedy's April 4, 1968, campaign rally uses high-definition Musion Eyeliner holographic effects to transport history buffs back to that historic day. Stop by the Cole Porter Room to experience '40s-style decor and live performances of the legend's standards in a cabaret setting.
The Destination Indiana installation features eight drive-yourself stations in which massive 10'x24' screens display the viewers' choice of journeys and stories from all of Indiana's 92 counties, from the historically busy streets of Indianapolis to the Martian volcanoes of Terre Haute.
Hit the handsome Lilly Hall to learn about Indiana's legends, and go behind the scenes in the W. Brooks Fortune History Lab for demonstrations of how documents and photographs are restored and preserved.
