The Canadian Automotive Museum is pleased to announce the addition of multilingual gallery guides to all gallery spaces. Produced in seven languages, including Portuguese, these guides will provide visitors of diverse linguistic backgrounds with increased access to Canadian automotive history.

Visitors can use the portable guides to discover the Canadian Automotive Museum’s unique collection of over 80 automobiles, from European racing cars and British Rolls-Royce limousines, to early examples of Canadian roadsters. The guides will give audiences a closer look at rare vehicles, such as the futuristic DMC-12 DeLorean, and the Kissel “Gold Bug” speedster, a favourite of pilot Amelia Earhart.

The museum is also hosting a family favourite. Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 is modelled after the Corvette C6 and Ford GT40, and inspired by sports starts Joe Namath and Muhammad Ali. Catch Lightning at the museum before he hits the road again in November 2018.

Through this exciting project, all audiences can engage more deeply with the stories behind the automotive industry, which has influenced Canadian life since the early 20th century.

Multilingual gallery guides will be available this spring at the Canadian Automotive Museum.

This project was made possible by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration.
