Bank of America funds the “Museums on Us” program to promote the importance and excitement of art, culture, and science by giving folks free access to participating museums and cultural centers around the US.  All you need to take advantage of this program is a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch debit or credit card!

Qualifying cards include:

Just bring your card to the museum or cultural center and show it at the counter, along with a photo ID.  That’s it!

Free entry is only good for the primary cardholder.  So if you bring friends or family, they’ll need their own qualifying card for free access.

Note:   “Free admission” does not necessarily mean you’ll have access to the entire space.  Some museums, zoos, etc. charge extra for special exhibits.  So take a look before you make plans, or you might be disappointed!

This is a nice deal for folks who are looking for ways to save on entertainment this weekend.  If you’re in Fort Worth, you could check out the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for the DinoLabs exhibit.  Or if you’re in Seattle, stop by the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience and tour the Bruce Lee Exhibit!

Bottom Line

On the first full weekend of each month, Bank of America and Merrill Lynch cardholders will get free entry to museums, zoos, and cultural centers nationwide!  Just show your qualifying card and photo ID at the door.

Some exhibits and areas of certain museums might cost extra.  So research a bit before you go!

We don’t get a commission for these cards, but we’ll always tell you about the best deals.

Learn lots this weekend!

It's *not* just the primary cardholder, authorized users work. Museums check the name on the card, and an ID, but don't swipe them. Cards don't have any indication if they were authorized user cards. Also, not just the listed credit cards, any consumer (i.e. not business) debit or credit.
