Bank of America Free Museums for 2023
Bank of America has a great program for art lovers and everybody else for that matter. Through Museums on Us, Bank of America is able to provide its customers with free access to artistic and cultural experiences across the United States at some of the nation’s most celebrated cultural institutions ranging from art, children’s and history museums to aquariums and science centers. This is the 26th year that Bank of America has run this promotion.
These museums normally have a fee, but Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card holders are able to get in for free on the first full weekend (Saturday and Sunday) of each month.
There’s a list with over 225 participating cultural institutions nationwide in 37 states and Washington DC, so you’ll most likely be able to find something amazing nearby. You can see all the participating museums here or check out this interactive map.
For free access simply present your Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card along with a photo ID at any participating institution, the first full weekend (Saturday and Sunday) of each month. There’s one free admission per card holders, so no guests. Program excludes fundraising events, special exhibitions and ticketed shows. And it cannot be combined with other offers.
While entry is free, you should check with the institution for current reopening plans, safety procedures and operating hours. If you choose to visit a museum, in addition to following physical distancing, you should also follow other requirements that are in place in many parts of the country.

A great program that gives you access to lots of museums nationwide. Definitely worth it if you have a Bank of America card. You can only access these museums for free during the first full weekend of the month, starting with this upcoming Saturday and Sunday. There is no limit on how many times you can visit for free, or how many museums you can see. If you live in a city with one of these museums, you can go see the new exhibits every month, or visit multiple museums in the same weekend even. There’s also zoos, aquariums, science centers and gardens included, so it could be a good way to spend a weekend. Also check out more free stuff here.
