Love the Layover: Free museum admissions this weekend

Touching down in a city somewhere this weekend?

Take a break from all the bad news about the economy and go visit a museum – for free.

Your local bank may be gone, but Bank of America’s Museums on Us program is still going.  For now. If you’ve got a Bank of America check, ATM, or credit card, you can get free general admission to 70 museums across the country on the first weekend of each month.

A good choice for this weekend: Harvard’s Museum of Natural History in Cambridge, Ma. where all these beautiful and startling images from Egg & Nest, a new book featuring photographs by one of my heroines, Rosamond Purcell, are on display.
