If your holiday travel plans bring you to NYC, you should definitely visit the famed Whitney Museum of American Art- and if you’re a Delta Medallion your admission is free (admission is normally $18).

Per the email I received:
For the entire month of December, SkyMiles Medallion® members and one guest each can enjoy complimentary admission to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Just show your current Medallion membership card at the Whitney’s membership desk to gain admission.

From Edward Hopper to Alexander Calder, the Whitney holds one of the world’s finest collections of modern and contemporary American art.”

Throughout the year Silver-Platinum Medallions can also visit for free on the first Friday of every month and Diamond Medallions have free access every day.

I think this is a really unique spin on elite status benefits and I hope Delta continues to offer these types of benefits in NYC and other cities.
