The Bottom Line
This is a good deal for existing BoA and Merrill Lynch cardholders, but it is not worth it to go and open up a new account for the purpose of taking advantage of this offer. I have not been to any of the museums that are included so I cannot comment on their quality. This offer goes beyond Florida. Nearly every state offers museums for this program. As I am from the Chicago area originally, I looked at their offerings and found very high quality participating museums, such as the Art Institute of Chicago and the Shedd Aquarium.

If you go here you can sign up for reminder emails or text alerts whenever the first full eligible weekend rolls around.
