Enjoy Free Museum Days With Your Bank of America Card


New Jersey is home to some of the country’s most amazing museums, but trying to visit them all can get a little pricey. No worries, though, mama; Bank of America is celebrating 25 years of offering FREE museum days at over 225 museums around the country, and we’ve got all the details. On the first full weekend of every month, BOA Free Museum Day offers their cardholders one free general admission ticket to a participating museum near you. Read on to find out where and how you can gain free access to these hubs for the arts and sciences with your BOA, Merrill Lynch, or Bank of America Private Bank (U.S. Trust) credit or debit cards.

How to redeem your free Museum Days admission ticket

At the museum entry, you’ll need to show your Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, or Bank of America Private Bank (U.S. Trust) credit or debit card and your license to the ticketing agent to redeem your free museum ticket (the free ticket is limited to the individual cardholder). The pass excludes special exhibitions, ticketed shows, and fundraising events, so if you want to visit those, you’ll have to purchase them separately. 

Here are some of our favorite museums around the tri-state area offering this amazing discount
