Free Museums May 2017
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:
- Bank of America Alaska Airlines (Personal)
- Bank of America Alaska Airlines (Business)
- Bank of America Virgin Atlantic
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!
