“What a guy?”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We spent the morning at the Alexander Bell Historic site and left thinking what a guy!. This is well worth a visit as part of your Cabot Trail trip. The Site is setup to educate and entertain.

“Informative”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

There's plenty of information in the museum. I learned a lot about the history of the telephone and his different inventions. I had no idea he was into kites and flight. There are a ton of photos of him and his family!

“AGBell museum”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We were impressed with all that he invented. The museum was well layed out and easy to navigate. The small theatre experiences were quite informative. While you are there you may run into Dr. Bell's great grandson, who enjoys visiting the museum on a regular basis.
