The free museum weekend from Bank of America is back for 2021 thanks to the “Museums on Us” program. Museums on Us offers Bank of America members free access to more than 200 cultural institutions nationwide during the first weekend of every month.

This weekend, May 1-2, 2021, is supposed to be a free museum weekend. If you bank with Bank of America, just bring your Bank of America card and ID and you will get into one of hundreds of museums for FREE.
* Due to COVID-19 many museums are closed or have shortened hours, so check with your local museum. Plus, the holiday weekend may also affect this program. I will update as soon as I find out more.

I almost wish I lived back in Chicago when I saw all the FABULOUS institutions you can get in for free:
*Art Institute of Chicago
*Chicago History Museum
*Museum of Contemporary Art
Here are some of the other popular destinations they offer free admittance to during free museum weekend:
Dallas: Perot Museum of Nature & Science

The first weekend of every month, Bank of America customers get in free to the 150 cultural institutions that participate in 94 cities in 31 states simply by showing their Bank of America card and photo ID…so hopefully you can find a participating museum by you!
