Best of the Townships

Musée de l'ingéniosité J. Armand Bombardier

If there’s one thing this museum has excelled at in its 46 years of existence, it’s reinvention. With a noteworthy expansion, Fab Lab (where your own creations come to life!) and immersive multimedia experience, the museum paints a very current picture of Québécois heritage with a collection including 3,000 artefacts, recreational vehicles, fascinating objects and exclusive prototypes.
