As part of the bank's "Museums on Us" program, people with a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card get free admission to the Newport Art Museum, 76 Bellevue Ave., Newport; the RISD Museum, 224 Benefit St., Providence; and the Providence Children's Museum, 100 South St., Providence.

Here are the details: Simply present your Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card along with a photo ID to gain free general admission to any participating institution, the first full weekend (Saturday and Sunday) of each month. Cardholders only; guests (including non-cardholding children) are not eligible for free admission. Program excludes fundraising events, special exhibitions and ticketed shows. Not to be combined with other offers.

The Newport Art Museum exhibits the contemporary and historic art of Newport and Southeastern New England. Its main building is a National Historic Landmark — the 1864 John Griswold family summer house. The Art Association of Newport bought the property from Griswold’s heirs in 1916. Griswold House was the first major commission in Newport for architect Richard Morris Hunt, who went on to design the Breakers and Marble House, both on Bellevue. 

The RISD Museum acquires, preserves, exhibits, and interprets works of art and design representing diverse cultures from ancient times to the present. Distinguished by its relationship to Rhode Island School of Design, the Museum educates and inspires artists, designers, students, scholars, and the general public through exhibitions, programs, and publications. 

The Providence Children's Museum features hands-on interactive exhibits for children to learn about science and history, and have fun playing in an interactive environment.

The next "Museums on Us" weekend will take place Feb 1 and 2.
