In short, Bank of America card holders can save a trip to the ATM and simply flash their BoA card at participating museums, zoos, science centers, botanical gardens, etc. at over 100 institutions across the United States on the first full weekend of the month. NYC participating venues include the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, the MET, and the Whitney (to name a few).
I love this idea and only hope that it can expand to more cities with more institutions on more occasions. It reminds me a little bit of such incentives for employees at certain companies who have access to museums and cultural venues for free by showing their work ID (and if you don’t already know what your perks might be, talk to your human resources department to inquire if/what access you may have).
