This month celebrate the holiday season with Museums on Us.® On the first full weekend of every month Bank of America cardholders get free access to more than 150 of the nation’s finest arts, cultural and educational institutions. This program gives free museum access to Bank of America’s cardholders in an effort to give them cultural benefits and increase the community’s access to the arts.

All they have to do is present their Bank of America/Merrill Lynch credit card or debit card and a valid photo id. The offer is only for the cardholder, is for general admission and excludes fundraising events, special exhibitions and ticketed shows. The program continues to grow as more states join in this movement to foster an interest in the arts. A new feature of this program is the release of the Museums on Us® mobile site. By logging into the site people who are travelling can check if the city they are in has a participating museum.
