MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota’s Williams Arena is turning 90 years old.

The university has organized birthday tributes to “The Barn” for the Gophers men’s basketball game on Tuesday night against Nebraska. The building with the uniquely raised floor opened in 1928.

Tickets are available for fans age 90 and older for 90 cents. The first 250 ticket-holders through the doors will receive a voucher to purchase one concession item at the 1928 price. Free cupcakes will be given to the first 90 people to purchase a regular-price concession item in section 114.

Historical audio and video features will be played in the arena throughout the game.
