  1. This is a great selection of some of the best sites for frugal and free stuff in Fort Worth!

  2. Thanks for the awesome suggestions! On the Museum of Science & History, is only the cardmember admitted for free? So, I’d get in free but have to pay for each of my 5 kids? I couldn’t find any other info on this.

    Any info you have would be great. Thanks!!

      Hi Texan Mama! Thanks for the kind compliments and good to hear from you again. :)

      You are right! The Bank of America site is a bit vague on this point. Since this is being rolled out to museums across the country, they are leaving it up to each museum to make the decision on whether or not it is for just each card holder in your family or if it includes the entire family. Fort Worth Science & History Museum has opted to only make it good for each cardholder in the family (so if you have 1 cardholder present, you get one ticket, 2 cardholders present gets 2 tickets, etc.).

      This is a great weekend to do the museum (inside in the A/C sounds perfect to me!).

      Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Would love to hear from you ~ leave your comments here.
