PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — If you hate paying full price, two local art museums have a deal for you.

The Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are offering a combination ticket this summer. For $40, you can visit both museums, which will save you a total of $10. Regular adult admission at the Barnes is usually $30, and a typical art museum ticket goes for $20.

Nina Diefenbach, senior vice president and deputy director for advancement at the Barnes, said the collaboration is perfect timing.

"With it being the centennial of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this summer, it seemed like a perfect time for us to partner with another iconic arts institution on the Parkway and create an opportunity for visitors to come at a discounted price to both the Philadelphia museum and to us," she explained.

You can buy the I HeART Summer tickets online or at either facility. The offer is available between now and Aug. 31.
