Looking for some free family fun this weekend? Here is a round up of free activities and events. It’s always a good idea to check with your local store before going to make sure that they are participating (especially if you’ve got a drive).


My top pick for this week is the Bank of America Museums on Us! If you’re a Bank of America card holder (this includes debit cards!) or a Merrill Lynch card holder, you can get free admission to over 150 museums nationwide! In my area, this includes The Children’s Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts!

Here’s a list of the other free weekends this year:
