Wait no longer to see the temporary
NATURE, Inspired TECHNO : Biomimicry & Transport.
Visitors of all ages are invited to explore how nature inspires
the creation of some innovative technologies used in
transportation. About thirty natural specimens and technological
objects that share common principles are showcased, as well as
interactive displays that explain these concepts. Did you know
that the PWC hydrojet is inspired by the squid’s propulsion
system? That smart cars use a detection system similar to that of
the locust? That there is an ultra-resistant type of glass
inspired by shells? Everything there is to know about biomimicry
and the technologies of the future is at your fingertips!
Star in a Ski-Doo® snowmobile
advertisement, take command of a C Series airplane, imagine a
vehicle of the future and test it out in the Idea Studio! Families
get to learn all the while having a great time! Give your visit an
interactive component by trying out the game on a tablet lent to
you on site, and explore the permanent exhibition as you look for
all kinds of artifacts (vehicles, objects, photos, archives). The
game lets you learn more about Bombardier’s ingenuity about
transport in a dynamic way.
The museum now offers guided tours of
its storehouse! These 20-minute visits are given every Friday,
Saturday, Sunday and Monday and let visitors get a
behind-the-scenes look. See one-of-a-kind vehicles, some of which
come directly from Joseph Armand Bombardier manufacturers, and
find out more about the pre-production work on new vehicles before
they are marketed.
Fill your summer with ingenuity and
creativity with a visit to the J. Armand Bombardier Museum of
