Free museum admissions this weekend & Sept. 27th

You can get free admission to selected museums in 18 states this weekend if you have a Bank of America check, ATM or credit card – or are friends with someone who does.

As part of the Museums on Us program, participating museums in 18 states (so far) offer free admission on the first weekend each month.

If you’re on the road, it’s a great way to stretch your travel budget. If you’re home, it’s a good excuse to stop by a local cultural mainstay and see what’s new.

If you get the museum bug, keep in mind that Saturday, September 27th is Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day, when hundreds of museums and cultural venues nationwide offer free or reduced admission. You’ll need this free, down-loadable card for this program.

Several aviation museums, including the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the American Airpower Heritage Museum in Midland, Texas, and the San Diego Air & Space Museum are on the list.
