More than a dozen Minnesota museums will be free to visit Saturday.

It's part of the Smithsonian Magazine's "The Museum Day Live!" – an annual celebration of "boundless curiosity," where hundreds of museums and cultural centers will provide free admission to anyone with a Museum Day Live! ticket.

This event has grown over the past 12 years, from 200 participating museums to about 1,250 now, CNBC reports. And this year, 18 museums in Minnesota will be participating:
