Indianapolis institutions collaborate on a cultural project and provide free admission



Indianapolis, Indiana – If you’re looking for something to do over the Labor Day weekend, you might be qualified for a program that grants free admission to several of Indianapolis’ most important museums.

Bank of America provides free entrance to cultural events to cardholders through a partnership with Museums on Us. Participants include the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, Conner Prairie, Newfields, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

If cardholders bring their Bank of America debit or credit card and a valid ID, they can see these cultural treasures for free this weekend.

The objective is emphasized by Geordan Coleman, vice president and market executive for the Indianapolis Market of Bank of America.

“We want to expand cultural understanding while supporting local museums and nonprofits. Our hope is that visitors will return, bringing others with them,” said Coleman.

The Lume Indianapolis, a Van Gogh exhibit, is one of many that Newfields is hosting this weekend. Indy Motor Speedway is giving visitors an early preview of its forthcoming Museum, which will open in April 2025 and close on November 6 of current year.

“Pyromania – The Def Leppard Experience,” presented by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, begins tonight at 8 p.m. at Conner Prairie, with gates opening at 6 p.m.

More than 225 cultural institutions from all over the country participate in this monthly program. The first full weekend of every month is when the project is in action.

There are additional cultural events in Indianapolis this weekend, including Butter, Devour Indy SummerFest, Indy Fringe Theater Festival, and Spark on the Circle, even if you don’t have a Bank of America credit card.
