Bank of America Free Museums For 2018 – Dates & List
Update 01/05/18: Reader Oliver asked me if they were running this for 2018. So here is an updated post.
Bank of America has a program called ‘Museums On Us‘ that gives it debit & credit cardholders access to free museums on the first full weekend of every month. You need to bring your debit/credit card along with photo ID to gain access and you only get access for the cardholder for free, no guests unfortunately (should be able to get around this by getting authorized user cards, but that would ruin somebody for Chase’s 5/24 rule). You only get general admission to these institutions (e.g if their is a special event on then you won’t get free admission to that).
You can view the full list of participating museums here. Note this still shows the 2017 year in the header.
Museums Of Note
In this section I’m going to add museums that readers recommend, along with why they recommend them. Feel free to add to this in the comments.
- Metropolitan Museum, New York City
- It has everything, Egyptian, Byzantine, Medieval, Renaissance periods are well represented; An Armory section that includes the armor of Henry VIII and of course lots and lots of paintings done by the masters.
- Children’s Museum of Richmond, Virginia.
- While it has the word Museum in the name, I wouldn’t guess it would be part of this program as it is more of a big play land for kids. A great value for sure! – Seth
