During a recent conversation about weekend plans with a friend I shared how I would be visiting a few museums in New York City. He was a Bank of America client and totally unaware of the Museums on Us program where on the first weekend of every month you can get free admission to a variety of cultural institutions across the country. Anybody with a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch debit/credit card qualifies for the program.
Visit http://museums.bankofamerica.com for a complete list of participating museums.
This is one of my favorite things to do not only because it’s free but I don’t feel I have to invest a lot of time in the visit to justify the cost of admission. I also try to use the perk whenever traveling and will also incorporate visits to museums of interest into a day or weekend trip when possible.
