Looking for an activity to do over the holiday weeks? Look no further and bring the whole family to the J. Armand Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity, located in Valcourt in the Eastern Townships!

Special holiday activity

Bring an old toy to the museum and transform it during this special holiday activity, held from December 22, 2018 to January 6, 2019. This activity is inspired by the first project of Joseph-Armand Bombardier: a miniature locomotive powered by a clock's mechanism. Follow in his footsteps and build your own toy out of the old one you've brought with you and other items you'll find in the box provided to you. The idea is simple: take apart, imagine and create!

An ingenious outing

Many interactive devices are at your disposal during your visit so you can see what it would be like to become the star of a Ski-Doo® snowmobile ad, pilot a Bombardier CSeries jet and design and test a vehicle of the future at the Idea Studio. Witness the destiny of J. Armand Bombardier at the Passion as a Way of Life exhibition as well as the rise of the Bombardier company thanks to the A Passion for Success multimedia show produced by Moment Factory.
