More than 150 museums nationwide are FREE again this weekend, the first weekend of the month – but only if you are the owner of a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit card. With the price of some museum and botanical gardens admissions as much as $25 or more, it’s worth getting a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit card just for the free museum admission deal.
This is the 18th year the two companies are offering their “Museums on Us” program, which includes such top cultural destinations as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles, the Denver Botanical Gardens, and the Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh.
