If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, you can go to six Connecticut museums for free if you have a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit card or debit card.
Bank of America’s “Museums on Us” program offers cardholders free weekend access to several museums and other cultural institutions across the United States on the first full weekend of every month and six museums in Connecticut are participating.
Fairfield Museum and History Center, at 370 Beach Road in Fairfield, is open Saturday, from noon to 40 p.m.
Bruce Museum, 1 Museum Drive in Greenwich, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but the last admission is 4:30 p.m.
