The Phoenix Art Museum and Heard Museum have joined for the second year to celebrate International Museum Day with an offer that gives visitors two museums for the price of one.

On Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17, visitors can purchase admission at either museum and take their same-day receipt to the other museum for free admission.
