If you have a Bank of America ATM, credit, or debit card, use it for free access to more than 100 museums, zoos, and science centers on the first full weekend of each month.
The bank’s popular Museums on Us program, now in its 12th year, was expanded in April to 26 states and the District of Columbia. Included are over 40 more cultural attractions than in 2008, including such large institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
To find a participating facility near you, go to museums.bankofamerica.com. Each cardholder who shows a valid photo ID is entitled to free general admission—but not to special exhibits or ticketed shows.
