Fewer Atlanta museums will be free to Bank of America customers through the “Museums on Us” program in 2010.

The program allows the millions of Bank of America debit, credit and ATM cardholders to visit more than 100 museums around the United States for free during a designated weekend each month.

When the program renews again in 2010, cardholders will still be able to get free admission to the Atlanta History Center, High Museum of Art and Millennium Gate Museum. That’s three fewer than in 2009, when the free weekends also included the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Fernbank Museum of Natural History and Zoo Atlanta.

Said Diane Wagner from Bank of America: “It is cyclical, they’ve chosen not to participate. We’re exploring some other opportunities with other organizations. It changes from year to year.”

The next BoA free weekend is Jan. 2-3, and they’ll continue on Feb. 6-7, March 6-7 and April 3-4. For more information, check out http://museums.bankofamerica.com.

Still, several museums in the area have their own free and discounted days or events, like Fulton Free Saturdays at the High Museum of Art, Target Free Second Tuesdays at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta or the Atlanta Braves Museum and Hall of Fame’s Toy for a Tour program for kids, which continues through Dec. 22.
