Museums around the country have teamed up with Bank of America to created the "Museums on Us" program.  Just show your Bank of America credit card, debit card or ATM card for free entrance to these museums on select weekends each month.  Go to http://promotions.bankofamerica.com/museums/ for more information and to find museums in your area.
