If you are busy this weekend, or you are not a cardholder with these banks, do not worry. Here are some other ways to get into your favorite museum for free all year round.
Show your military ID
The Blue Star Museum's plan allows them with a military ID along with their families, free museum entry from Memorial Day weekend through workday. To find participating museums, check this map.
Go to the library
Some libraries let you check out more than movies and books. They also let you check out passes to museums and science centers. All you have to do is book your trip with your library a few weeks in advance.
Participating city library systems include Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Dallas, Miami, Denver, and Chicago.
Don't you see your city? Call your local library or check out their website to see if it provides passes.
Usually, museums have days where you can visit a museum for free without any tickets or special preps. You just need to know when these days are.
Some cities have a history or culture night once a year where all local historical sites, city tours and museums are free to the public. To find out if your city is planning one of these days, call your local Chamber of Commerce.
For slow times, the museums will also have their own days off. Check out their website or give the museum a call and simply ask if they have any free entry days that come up on the calendar.
