FREE Museum Admission for Bank of America Customers

At Bank of America, they believe in the power of the arts. That’s why for the past 24 years, during the first full weekend of every month, Bank of America has offered its valued cardholders free general admission to more than 225 cultural institutions in dozens of cities across the US where our customers live and work.

We personally love the Bank of America Museums on Us program, which offers FREE general admission at eight top cultural attractions throughout Chicagoland, including the The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago History Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Arts.  For the past 24 years, through Museums on Us, Bank of America has provided FREE weekend general admission for Bank of America, Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank credit and debit cardholders to some of our nation’s greatest cultural experiences and brought new visitors to our partner museums.


Check out all the possible cultural institutions to visit in the whole country by using the  Museum Location Finder which also has all museum safety procedures and operating hours.
