Looking towards 2007!

2006-08-31, from Member

Valcourt, 31 August, 2006 – The Bombardier Museum will close its doors this coming Tuesday, September 5 to start work on refurbishing the J.-Armand Bombardier Exhibit Hall.

2007 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the famous inventor Joseph-Armand Bombardier and it provides the perfect opportunity to update the À la poursuite d’un rêve (In pursuit of a Dream) exhibit which has been a feature of the museum since 1990. The revamped exhibit, tentatively entitled Joseph-Armand Bombardier 1907, naissance d’un inventeur, (Joseph-Armand Bombardier 1907 – the Birth of a Inventor) will showcase the inventor’s innovative role in creating an industrial empire centred around almost every mode of transport. By seeing the extraordinary vehicles that he helped to create through new eyes, Bombardier’s inventive genius and creativity will shine through more than ever.

State-of-the-art technology will be employed to bring to life the unique collection, highlighting the technical information and design features of each vehicle. As well, the revamped exhibit will reveal new aspects of Bombardier’s life and work, giving visitors a more in-depth look at this fascinating man. Groupe GID Design, an engineering consultancy that has specialized in cultural projects for over 30 years, will oversee the design and implementation of this exciting project.

The reopening of the museum is slated for February 6, 2007. Several activities are planned to mark the year. We’d love you to come and celebrate this special event with us. For more information, please call 450 532-5300.
