TACOMA, Wash. (September 24, 2012) – Parents: if you’re looking for an escape from 20,000-plus kids singing “Baby, baby, baby…ohhh,” LeMay – America’s Car Museum (ACM) has you covered.  

On Tuesday, Oct. 9, ACM will host “Parental Daycare,” an oasis for moms and dads whose children are across the street at the Justin Bieber concert.  Additionally, the museum will open at 5 p.m. for all concert-goers who want to come early, eat, drink and hangout.

The four-level, 165,000-square-foot museum will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. the night of the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Tacoma Dome.  Cost of admission to Parental Daycare is $10 for adults.  Kids (17 and under), with Bieber tickets in-hand and accompanied by a paid adult, will not be charged.

“We’re giving parents and Bieber fans an opportunity to come early, beat the traffic, have dinner and drinks in our café and browse among Ferraris, muscle cars, Indy racers and other rare automobiles in the collection,” said Scot Keller, ACM chief marketing officer.  “When the concert begins, send your kids across the street and wait for ‘Bieber Fever’ to subside.  Why should the kids have all the fun?”

ACM will also be giving away two tickets to the sold-out Bieber concert at a special event on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  There’s no purchase to enter the drawing, and kids (17 and under) can tour the museum with a ticket-paying adult at no cost.
