Several New Jersey museums will open their doors to Bank of America and Merill Lynch cardholders this weekend as part of the bank's "Museums On Us" initiative.
The intention of the event is "to provide a cultural benefit to Bank of America cardholders and increase access to the arts across the United States," according to a press release.
"The program brings new audiences and increased attention to participating organizations, which range from some of the nation’s most celebrated museums to regional gems and include art, science and history museums, as well as other cultural institutions," the press release said.
Participating museums include the Liberty Science Center, Garden State Discovery Museum, Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, The Noyes Museum of Art of Richard Stockton College, Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art, the Montclair Art Museum, Morris Museum and Newark Museum.
During "Museums On Us," cardholders can visit any of the participating museums on Saturday and Sunday, and the first full weekend of every month in 2013, for free. The program is open to cardholders only and photo ID must be shown at the door.
