The museum has activities every day during the summer for the whole family! In addition to a fascinating permanent exhibition, the J. Armand Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity offers many new things to discover over the season.

A new temporary exhibition

Wait no longer to see the temporary exhibition Inspiring 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!

Make learning fun!

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.

Guided tours of the storehouse

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 Ingenuity!
