Bank of America will be continuing its “Museums on Us” program in 2019. The program, which allows Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust credit and debit cardholders free access to over 200 institutions, is entering its 22nd year.

Cardholders will receive free admission on the first full weekend of each month. Cardholders need only present their card and a photo ID to gain a free general admission. The promotion doesn’t include access to special exhibits, ticketed shows, or fundraising events. Free admission applies to the cardholder only, not to any additional guests.

2019 Weekend Dates:

  • Jan 5-6
  • Feb 2-3
  • March 2-3
  • April 6-7
  • May 4-5
  • June 1-2
  • July 6-7
  • Aug 3-4
  • Sept 7-8
  • Oct 5-6
  • Nov 2-3
  • Dec 7-8

If you find yourself strolling down 5th Ave in New York one of the dates you can slip into the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collection at the Met is one of the best in the world, with just about any type of art and artifact you could imagine. The Met also houses a huge Egyptian collection that includes an entire temple that was gifted to the United States by Egypt.

If enjoying art “in the round” is more to your liking you will enjoy spending time at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The PMA is home to one of the largest collections of work by the sculpting master Rodin. The collection is one of the largest in the United States and includes work in both bronze and stone.

If pop art is more your style you can check out the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh as part of Bank of America’s program. Housing the largest collection of Warhol art anywhere in the world, a day spent here will certainly give you your pop art fix.

For cardholders, this long-running program is a great way to enjoy art and culture. Bank of America’s full list will let you see if any of your upcoming travels will have you visiting a destination that will allow you to take advantage of the program. Of course this is also a great way to check out any of your local museums that made the list for free as well.
