You love diving into the mysteries of the past, but dense history tomes tend to swamp you with information. Make the journey of discovery a lot more fun with a trip to the historic Franklin Institute. With today's deal, pay $15 for admission to the traveling exhibition, "Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times," as well as general museum admission, which includes one show in the Fels Planetarium (regularly $31.50). Running until October 14, the exhibition provides a rare glimpse into life in ancient Israel, displaying a collection of the 2,000-year-old scrolls -- four of them never before seen -- alongside more than 600 ancient artifacts running the gamut from architectural marvels to the oldest known copy of the Hebrew Bible. You may not be able to touch the ancient artifacts, but everything else in the museum is hands on: Learn about light while playing with lasers at an interactive science cart, or try the Sports Challenge, which uses virtual-reality technology to illustrate the physics of your favorite sports. Knowledge flows freely at this museum designed to inspire passion about science and technology.
