I just got 48 tulip bulbs from Holland for Christmas. Of course, I'm not going outside in our frigid Minnesota weather to plant them now, so I need to store them someplace for the next 3-4 months. Different websites say quite different things. Should they be in the garage which is currently about 0°? In a closet? In the basement? in the fridge? planted in pots and put in the fridge? Or should I plant them in a huge pot and leave them outside? Thank you for your advice!

It would appear that in your area, you should be planting these in November or October. They will be hardy in your area, and can remain outside... I would still wait to plant them until next year though. This article will give you information on how to store them until then: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/tulips/how-to-cure-tulip-bulbs.htm
