bofa_musBank of America runs a program called Museums on Us which offers cardholders free admissions to 150 museums, science centers, and botanical gardens nationwide on the first full weekend of every month (Saturday and Sunday). Simply present any valid Bank of America® or Merrill Lynch® credit or debit card and photo ID for free admission.

Note: Each cardholder gets one free general admission, so be sure everyone with their own cards bring them. Hmm, I wonder if my 3-year-old can be added as an authorized user?

Here is the full list (PDF) of participating locations. One of the available museums is the Thinkery in Austin, Texas. We recently visited there, and found it to be a fun and interactive children’s science center. The admission was $9 per person (23 month and under free). That means taking advantage of this offer would have saved us $18 (or $27 if the little one had a BofA card in theory). I’ve seen other museums on their list with $20 admission prices.

While I wouldn’t open a new bank or credit card account for this feature, it is a nice perk if you already have such accounts. Here are the Bank of America credit cards that offer competitive features that I have reviewed in the past. The Travel Rewards card is my current primary rewards card.
