So apparently, I’ve had a free pass to several awesome NYC museums in my wallet for quite some time. You might have a free pass too.
Bank of America has a cool program called “Museums on Us” during the first full weekend of every month. My fiancé and I have been taking advantage of the program this year to get reacquainted with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and it’s really been wonderful. All you have to do is show up, show your card plus your government issued ID and you’re in. And you can put your savings to good use and still support the museum by dining at the in-house cafe and/or purchasing merchandise. During our last visit, we enjoyed tea and snacks with great views of Central Park at the Petrie Court Cafe.
Now, I’m not getting anything from Bank of America by letting you guys know about this. Just giving you the heads up in case you’re a cardholder and you like to take in some culture every now and then. Plus, I think it’s a nice reward given all the interest you might be paying on your credit card
Here are the participating NYC museums (some real heavy hitters on the list):
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Staten Island Children’s Museum
New York Historical Society
Whitney Museum of American Art
Brooklyn Children’s Museum
El Museo del Barrio
Queens Museum of Art
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
