Kick off your weekend with free museum admissions

Super Bowl fever isn’t exactly contagious in New England right now, with the Patriots having bowed out of the playoffs weeks ago. But now that you don’t have to plan that big Super Bowl spread or sit in front of the television to catch the fourteen-hour pre-game show, you might have some free time on your hands this weekend.

And if you’re a Bank of America cardholder, you’ll be able to spend your free time at some free attractions across New England. This weekend (and for the first full weekend of each month of 2010 through September), any cardholder who shows their Bank of America ATM, credit, or debit card at select museums will get free general admission. It’s part of Bank of America’s Museums on Us campaign.

These are the 13 participating locations in New England:

  • Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (Hartford, CT)
  • Mashantucket Pequot Museum (Mashantucket, CT) (note: closed on Sunday)
  • Stepping Stones Museum for Children (Norwalk, CT)
  • Farnsworth Art Museum (Rockland, ME)
  • Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, MA)
  • Harvard Museum of Natural History (Cambridge, MA)
  • Danforth Museum of Art (Framingham, MA)
  • DeCordova Sculpture Park + Museum (Lincoln, MA)
  • EcoTarium (Worcester, MA)
  • Currier Museum of Art (Manchester, NH)
  • Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art (Providence, RI)
  • Providence Children’s Museum (Providence, RI)
  • Museum of Work and Culture (Woonsocket, RI)

Even if you're still planning to watch the big game on Sunday, whether to root for or against a team or to check out the commercials, you can still make it out to one of these local museums and be home in time for kickoff. Click here for more details on the Museums on Us campaign.
