TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 8 (UPI) -- A Washington state car museum was giving visitors with "Chris" in their first or last name half-price admission for Columbus Day, the marketing director said.

The "Chris" visitors were being admitted Monday or $7 instead of the usual $14 at America's Car Museum in Tacoma.

"Christopher Columbus and automobiles ... now that's American," said Scot Keller, chief marketing and communications officer for ACM. "So if you're a Chris, Christina, Chrissie, Christine or Christian, Monday's a great chance to discover our museum at a special price. Adults get half off and kids [12 and under] get in free."

Keller said participants had to present some form of identification to prove their claim to the name "Chris."
