No Labor Day Weekend Plans? What About a Museum?

Bank of America and Merrill Lynch cardholders get free museum admissions today and Sunday to three Connecticut venues and several others in the region.


Up in the air on what to do today or Sunday? If you’re a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch cardholder, you can visit one of three Connecticut museums this weekend for free.

The Labor Day weekend event is part of Bank of America’s "Museums on Us" program, Bank of America’s celebration this year of arts and culture that provides cardholders with free access to 150 museums and other venues nationwide on the first full weekend of every month. 

In Connecticut, the museums participating in the initiative are the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford and the New Britain Museum of American Art.

“Bank of America has strong long-term relationships with an array of institutions nationwide, including museums, science centers, botanical gardens and aquariums, and created “Museums on Us” to promote these institutions and provide a free cultural benefit to Bank of America and Merrill Lynch cardholders,” the bank said in a press release announcing the Labor Day weekend program.

Other institutions taking part in the program regionally include the Newport Art Museum in Newport, R.I., the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and several museums in New York City, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The offer is good only on Saturday and Sunday this Labor Day weekend. To gain free entry participants must show a photo ID and a valid Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card at the time of visit. The offer is limited to one free general admission to each cardholder at a participating institution and does not include free admission to certain special events, such as fundraising events, special exhibitions and ticketed shows.
