Looking for an uplifting and educational activity this weekend?  Bank of America has your back!

If you have a Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, or US Trust debit or credit card, you’ll get free admission to 200+ participating museums and cultural centers during the first full weekend of every month.

You Could Add a Visit to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City to Your Labor Day Weekend Schedule If You’re In the Area!

Free Museums September 2018

The Museums on Us program is designed to increase popularity for art, culture, and science by giving folks free access to participating museums and cultural centers around the US.  You just need a Bank of America, US Trust, or Merrill Lynch debit or credit card!

Qualifying cards include, but not limited to:

  • Bank of America Alaska Airlines (personal and business versions)
  • Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Credit Card
  • Bank of America Virgin Atlantic

Bring your card with you to the museum and present it at the door, along with a photo ID.  But only the cardholder is eligible for free admission.

This is a nice deal for folks who are looking for ways to save on entertainment this weekend.  If you’re in Orlando, you could check out the Orlando Science Center.  Or if you’re in Philadelphia, you could do your best Rocky impression on the stairs at the Philadelphia Art Museum.

Note:   “Free admission” does not necessarily mean you’ll have access to the entire space.  Some museums, zoos, etc., charge extra for special exhibits.

Check out the full list of participating museums here.

Have a fun and edifying weekend!
