Ho-Ho-Holiday Happenings at ACM

“˜Tis the season for creating special memories with loved ones”¦and your favorite vintage vehicles! December is a wonderful time to visit ACM and this guide will help you to take advantage of all the Museum has to offer.

Santa at ACM

Skip the mall! If you’re looking for a unique photo with Santa, ACM is the place to be! Did we mention the photo is complimentary with Museum admission?

Join Santa on December 10, 16 & 17 from 11 am – 3 pm for a photo in a 1906 Cadillac Model K Tulip Touring Car. Kids receive a free slot car voucher for the ACM Speed Zone! Santa photos are included with ACM admission as a digital download. ACM Members and kids 5 and under always receive free admission.

Hoods Up for the Holidays

Lights aren’t the only things that dazzle in December. ACM has put the hoods up on over a dozen iconic vehicles throughout the Museum. Discover more about the engines on display by keeping an eye out for the “Did You Know?” signs posted at each vehicle.

Enhance your family’s Hoods Up experience with a complimentary all-ages Activity Guide, available at Guest Services. At the end of your visit, turn in the completed Activity Guide to Guest Services and be entered into prize drawings!

Santa’s Castle Toy Drive

Receive an admission discount while helping the community during the holidays. Santa’s Castle started at Joint-Base Lewis-McChord and offers assistance to military families by providing toys, books, and board games for military children, ages infant to 17, whose families are experiencing financial difficulties.

ACM will accept new unwrapped toys at Guest Services daily between 10 am and 5 pm. All visitors who donate a new, unwrapped toy will receive $2 off regular adult ACM admission.
