Some of the Bay Area’s most popular museums will be free to Bank of America customers this weekend.

As part of the bank’s “Museums on Us” program, anyone with a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card and a photo ID will receive free admission to four museums Saturday and Sunday, according to the bank.

The museums are the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, and the Contemporary Jewish Museum, de Young Museum and Legion of Honor in San Francisco.

The program will also be in effect during the first full weekend Saturday and Sunday–of each month in 2013. Fundraising events, special exhibits and ticketed shows are not included.
