Groupon: Portland Children's Museum - 2 admissions for $8!!!

Today’s Groupon: for $8, you get admission for two (up to a $16 value) to the Portland Children’s Museum, located in Washington Park. (The museum will be closed from September 7 to 13.) You can purchase two sets of 2 admissions, for a total of 4 admissions, and you have until Feb 26, 2011 to use them!

Founded in 1946, the Portland Children’s Museum welcomes more than 300,000 kids ages 10 or younger each year through a number of interactive exhibits and educational activities. Let aspiring Becketts stage their own despairing three-act plays at the Play It Again Theater, or let them mend a puppy’s injured leg in the Pet Hospital. The Twilight Trail takes kids and adults through a mystical forest littered with puppet animals, finally ending at a face painting station, where kids can have their mugs dolled-up to look like their favorite jungle animal or least favorite member of the Canadian Parliament. Special kid-centric activities occur every day, from funky disco dancing at the theater to soothing yoga stretches with a museum educator.

The Portland Children’s Museum moved into its current locale in 2001, adding a gift shop, café, and space for whimsically minded educational programs. Pick up a couple of Groupons, pack up your kids, the neighbor's kids, or a gaggle of coughing Victorian chimney-sweep kids, and make an amusing day of it at the museum.
