What’s honestly better than going on a cute date with your husband or meeting up with your friend group over the weekend? MAKING IT A FREE ADVENTURE!
If you are in the Orlando area (or anywhere else in the USA) and if you currently are a Bank of America card holder: YOU NEED to check this out! The first weekend of EVERY month Bank of America sponsors all of the local art, science and history museums, allowing free entry to their card holders! (AMAING RIGHT?)
To find what museums are being sponsored in your area, check out the Bank of America site here.
First just a few tricks:
- Pack a picnic. Between each of the Museums and the Science Center, there is a HUGE beautiful park. An absolutly perfect spot to roll out a quilt and have a picnic.
- Bring cash for the parking garage. For the weekend it will cost you around $10 to park for the day. The Museums and the Science Center are walkable from the garage.
Here’s a suggested itinerary for making the most out of the weekend!
Start off at the Orlando Science Center (weekends the open at 10:00AM). Spend time, wandering through all of the fun exhibits the Sceince Center has to offer and even check out one of their IMAX shows!
After the Science Museum, wander back to your car and grab your picnic basket. You can park a blanket right underneath Orlando’s oldest oak tree, located right in front of the Mellenno Museum of art.

After lunch, step into the Mellenno Museum of Art (weekends they open up at 12PM). Be sure to wander their sculpture gardens out back!
Next stop, Orlando Art Museum (weekends they open up at 12PM).
For the last stop, jump back into your car and make your way to Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens (they open up at 1PM on the weekends).
I am obsessed with packing my weekends FULL of activities from kayaking, to wandering countless art museums, I can never keep still. How I do it? I take incredible care of my health. Even though my schedule is JAM packed. Check out my website and stock up on my favorite energizing coffees and green SUPER drinks. Now let’s hit up another museum!
