ACM will honor dads with a special Father's Day weekend of deals and activities on June 15 and 16, including driving simulator rides, a drive-in movie and a special look at the engines of cars inside the museum.

-Sons and daughters of all ages who bring their father to the museum during the weekend will receive a 2-for-1 voucher to drive racing simulators that emulate the NASCAR track experience.

-There's a blast from the past on Saturday evening when the museum kicks off its Drive-In Movie Series with the showing of "Back to the Future" on a 40-foot movie screen on ACM's spacious outdoor show field. Movie-goers can park and watch the film from their vehicle or spread out on the grass with blankets and chairs, as well as enjoy free zip-lining, inflatable bounce houses and face painting. Museum hours will be extended to 9 p.m., so visitors can cruise among the cars inside ACM before the movie starts.

-A rare "hoods up" event will allow dads and families to catch an insider's look at many of the engines in the cars on display throughout the museum.

-Family memberships, which provide unlimited one-year admission for two adults and four children, will be discounted for purchase throughout the weekend.
