If you are a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch cardholder, take note…
You might have read about the Museums on Us program that offers Bank of America/Merrill Lynch bank cardholders FREE admission to the Fort Worth Science & History Museum, The Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas Museum of Nature & Science on the first Saturday and Sunday of each month (that would be this weekend ~ January 7 & 8).
Did you know that this same FREE admission offer is available at over 150 other cultural venues from coast to coast?

Is Bank Of America part of Merrill Lynch now? We have a Bank Of America credit card, so is this okay to use for free entry? Or does it have to be a BOA/Merril Lynch combined card?
(sorry if that was confusing! ha ha)
LOL! :) I don’t know all the business ends-and-outs, but Bank of America and Merrill Lynch have merged companies. To answer your main question, yes ~ all you need to do is show your bank of america card (1 free entry per card). Apparently there are Merrill Lynch bank/credit cards that will work for this promo, too (these would also earn 1 free entry per card). Be sure and bring your ID that matches your credit/bank card, as they will likely check to make sure they match.
Which museum are you going to? Have fun!
