If you’re a Bank of America customer, you can visit some museums and art galleries for free this year.
The program officially kicks off this weekend (January 5-6) and grants Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and U.S. Trust credit and debit card holders free general admission to over 200 destinations in 123 different cities around the country on the first full weekend of every month.
And there are some pretty great options.
In San Francisco, for instance, I can visit the Legion of Honor and deYoung Museum for free. In Chicago, the deal works for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago History Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, and a few others. You can see the full list of participating museums here.
To take advantage of the deal you just need to bring your debit or credit card and a photo ID to prove that you’re the person named on the card.
No one city has a ton of choices, but there are definitely some good ones on the list that are worth taking advantage of.
