The Alexander Graham Bell Museum had a lot to see and learn about. Alexander Graham Bell had invented more than I ever imagined. The museum is extensive. It sits on a hill overlooking a magnificent view of Cape Breton in the resort town of Baddeck. The town is lovely to walk around in. People are very willing to help you find things.

He did much more than just invent the phone. A pretty complete history of his work with the Deaf, his interest in and contributions to aviation and in hydroplane boats are given lots of attention.

We spent over 3 hours here ,I had no idea of all of Alexander Graham Bell's achievements and interests...fascinating, very well designed, holding your interest throughout , and a great insight to not only the man himself but his wife and family as well.

It's all here from tetrahedron strengthened tower, kites, airplanes, hydrofoils, etc. A comprehensive and compelling presentation well worth the price of admission. Spend a couple of hours or spend the whole day.
