If you've been meaning to visit some of the area's museums, the first full weekend of the month might be a good time if you're a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch customer. Each card holder for those businesses gets one free admission to museums on those weekends.
To participate in the Museums on Us program, bring your bank credit or debit card along with a photo ID to gain free general admission to the museum. The offer only applies to cardholders. Guests of cardholders are not eligible for free admission. See other details here.
