“Great place. Better than we expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We spent a morning here. It's quite a large place, with many displays on a variety of subjects. Mr. Bell was quite a guy and we learned about a lot of his different interests and inventions, as well as his history.

“Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Wasn't sure if this would be an interesting exhibit but I learned lots. I had no idea Bell was such an amazing inventor. Not much hands on here, but lots of amazing exhibits to see.

“Excellent Museum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

An excellent museum with the highlight being a full-scale wooden hydrofoil designed by AGB. Lots of fun things for children and parents. You can creep through and learn all there is to know about AGB, or blast through and simply hit the highlights and admire this inventor - who created alot more than the telephone.
