What a wonderful museum to visit. More geared towards adults because there is a lot of reading involved.

“Good Overview About Bell's Life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

While touring the Cabot Trail and staying overnight in Beddeck, I toured this museum prior to our departure from the area. There are alot of numerous displays and movies of Bell's life and various achievements throughout his lifetime. His work with the deaf certainly lead to the invention of the telephone. Members of his family still live on the property and Bell moved to this area because the morning mist reminded him of his Scottish roots. Good museum to learn some Canadian history and retired Bell employee's better known as the Pioneer's also man a information booth to answer questions about this place. guided tours are also available.
