Free Museum Day for Bank of America Cardholders

On April 7 and 8, Bank of America is offering free museum admission for cardholders as part of their Museums on Us program. Providence Children’s Museum, The RISD Museum and Newport Art Museum are participating.

Going to a museum with several adults and kids in tow can be expensive. But if you have a Bank of America credit or debit card, you can enjoy free admission on Saturday and Sunday, April 7 and 8, and the first weekend of every month, at participating museums. Bank of America's Museums on Us program allows the general public to visit many of our nation's best educational facilities, free of charge.

In Rhode Island, you can enjoy free admission to the Providence Children’s Museum, The RISD Museum and Newport Art Museum. All you need to do is show your photo ID and a valid Bank of America/Merrill Lynch credit or debit card at the time of visit. You will get one free general admission for each cardholder at a participating institution.

The program also includes other New England museums, including those in nearby Massachusetts: the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge, the Worcester Art Museum, the American Textile History Museum in Lowell, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams.

As part of Museums on Us, more than 150 institutions, in ninety-one cities across the country, open their doors to bank cardholders on the first full weekend of each month. Other upcoming weekends include: May 5-6 and June 2-3.
