As the chill of winter sets in, what better way to enjoy some quality family time than at a museum. Not only will you avoid the cold, but you’ll also soak in some culture. And this weekend, you can score all that quality time at the very low price of completely free.

On January 6 and 7 more than 175 cultural attractions across the country, like museums, aquariums, gardens and zoos, will offer free admission to Bank of America and Merrill Lynch debit and credit cardholders through a program called Museums On Us. Not only that, but the free admission program will also be offered on the first full weekend of every month for the rest of 2018.
