Bank of America Expands Its Free Museum Admission Program

bank of america - free museum admissionBank of America is expanding its Museums on Us program, which gives free museum admission on the first full weekend of the month to anyone who holds a BofA or Merrill Lynch debit or credit card, to include 150 new museums and cultural centers across the country.

"This is a distinctive advantage of doing business with us and we are proud to share this program with cultural enthusiasts across the nation," says BofA's arts and culture executive Rena M. DeSisto. The message: Like museums? Bank with us.The next free weekend is Feb. 5-6. With so many folks watching the Super Bowl, you may just have the museum to yourself. Other free weekends in 2011 are Mar. 5-6, Apr. 2-3, May 7-8, June 4-5, July 2-3, Aug. 6-7, Sept. 3-4, Oct. 1-2, Nov. 5-6, and Dec. 3-4.

The new museums and cultural centers include the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the SITE Santa Fe, the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio and additional museums in Bridgeport, Conn., Savannah, Ga., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Pittsburgh, Pa., Memphis, Tenn., and Williamsburg, Va.

Old standbys include:
  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York
  • Art Institute of Chicago
  • NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.
  • The Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, Calif.
  • MUZEO, Los Angeles
  • National World War I Museum in Kansas City, Mo.
Caveats: The freebie is for one general admission ticket to the participating museum. You'll need a photo ID along with your debit or credit card. The free admission is not valid for special exhibitions, fundraising events or ticketed shows. Cannot be combined with any other discounts or offers. Free admission does not guarantee reservation. If the museum is not open both weekend days, the freebie may just be for one day. Call ahead to check.

Check back later today and through the week for more great freebies at WalletPop.
