The Hudson River Maritime Museum announced today its participation in the Bank of America Museums on Us® program, which provides Bank of America and Merrill Lynch cardholders’ free general admission more than 200 of the nation’s finest arts, cultural and educational institutions during the first full weekend of every month.
To qualify for the Museums on Us program, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust customers simply present their credit or debit card and a valid photo ID to gain one free general admission* to any participating institution which is limited to the cardholder and excludes fundraising events, special exhibitions and ticketed shows (not to be combined with other offers).
“This is the bicentennial of the construction of the Erie Canal,” said Lisa Cline, Executive Director of the Hudson River Maritime Museum. “We are delighted to join Bank of America in this exciting program to reach a larger population and welcome them to see our special exhibit commemorating this important transportation innovation that helped to build not only New York State, but the nation itself.”
The Museums on Us program, now in its 21st season, has experienced major growth in recent years due to increased demand, bringing the total geographic reach to 123 cities in 35 states across the country.
“We’re proud to partner with the Hudson River Maritime Museum to offer residents and visitors a chance to experience culture in the local community,” said Jennifer MacPhee, Albany & Hudson Valley President, Bank of America. “As we approach our 21st anniversary of the program, we continue our commitment to supporting our non-profit partners and increasing access to diverse arts and cultural resources for our customers.”
