Museums from coast to coast will have free admission on Saturday as part of Smithsonian Magazine's Museum Day Live. 

Art museums, science centers and other attractions are participating in Saturday's event, which was created to promote STEM programs. 

In order to take advantage of free admission at museums, tickets are available on Smithsonian Magazine's webpage. Tickets are limited to one person plus a guest per email address. 

Once you enter your name, email address and select the museum you wish to attend, your ticket will appear on the next screen and be emailed to you. The ticket does not cover special attractions or parking at many locations. 

Organizers said that once you choose a museum, you cannot change your selection.
