Fodor's Review

This museum displays innovator Bombardier's many inventions, including the snowmobile. It's partly a showcase for Bombardier's products, including Ski-Doo snowmobiles, but it also documents the history of snow transportation with interesting facts about winter weather, a topic of import in this corner of the world. As you walk around, you can compare yesteryear's simple modes of snow transportation—loggers working with horses in the woods, Lapps harnessing their reindeer,

and so on—shown on photographic backdrops, with today's sleek vehicles.
