DRIVE: Reimagining the Ride


March 9, 2022 -  June 4, 2023

Vehicles help us work, play, and move. Some of them help us dream, and some might be made of dreams. Let your imagination run wild in DRIVE: Reimagining the Ride.

See creative adaptations of vehicles of years past, from the solar-powered Nanook, to an amphicar that slides from land to sea and back again, to the stylish Bricklin SV-1 sportscar that inspired the famous DeLorean. Learn what a hearse, a tractor, and a sports car have in common. Take a pit-stop in the hands-on Tinker Garage, where visitors of all ages can express their creativity through monthly themed activities. 

Twelve vehicles spanning from the 1890s to the 1990s, on loan from the Reynolds-Alberta Museum and Remington Carriage Museum, tell varied stories of imagination and creativity in addressing our basic need to get ourselves—and our things—from place to place.

Enter another world and explore the similarities and differences between vehicles of different eras, context, purpose, and approach, and gain appreciation for the imaginative minds of inventors and designers.
