One passion, two wheels, three stories

Both a symbol of freedom for kids learning to ride and a practical, efficient means of transportation for city folks in a hurry, the bicycle has met the needs of cyclists of all ages and classes since its invention in the 19th century. But that’s not all! Did you know it’s also the most used mode of transportation in the world, with more than 1.5 billion bicycles on the planet? From June 1, 2024, to April 27, 2025, explore dozens of bicycles from all eras during One passion, two wheels, three stories, an exhibition that reveals the secrets of “this invention which literally changed the world.”

Daniel T. Tremblay – Manifestations of Mystery

In the exhibition Daniel T. Tremblay – Manifestations of Mystery, self-taught Chicoutimi artist Daniel T. Tremblay takes a critical look at the society around him. In addition to creating impressive works of excessive nature, Tremblay believes that “for silence to declare itself, a voice must be given to the unspoken, to the tacit mysteries that inhabit our existence.” You can visit the exhibition from June 1 to September 22, 2024.
