On Cribs, artists and athletes showed off their mansions -- but how many of them survived smallpox and manufactured cannonballs? Tour a truly interesting home of the past with today's deal: Pay $8 for admission for two to the John Brown House Museum on Power Street (regularly $16). This museum is the painstakingly restored home of John Brown, a wealthy businessman and slave-trader from the 18th century. Brown's treasures range from the quirky -- like the squirrel-themed wallpaper he had custom-designed -- to luxuries like a million-dollar secretary desk. Currently open on Friday and Saturday, the museum will be open Tuesday through Saturday starting in April, so you can easily explore Brown's checkered past and priceless possessions, like china bowls -- not firemen's poles.
