Free museums on Bank of America's dime

UPDATE July 2013: It appears MIM is no longer participating in this program. Boo.

Bank of America ought to be good for something--and with their Museums on Us program, it seems they finally are. If you are a B of A cardholder, the first full weekend of the month you can get a free admission to participating museums. It works for debit cards or credit cards--you show your card to get in free. In Phoenix the museums participating in this deal are the Children's Museum of Phoenix, the Phoenix Art Museum, and the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM)--all great museums. My husband and I both have cards, so last month we went to the MIM.

Kids under 6 are free at the MIM, so we didn't have to pay anything. This museum sounds like it would be totally boring but it's great. They have guitars and memorabilia from famous musicians like Elvis and John Lennon, neato wi-fi headphones you wear throughout the museum which play the appropriate music as you walk up to each exhibit, and a room where the kiddos can bang away on amazing instruments (like the giant gong above!). Well worth the money I didn't pay.
