Alexander Graham Bell Museum is a great place to get aquainted with Alexander as inventor of so much more than the telephone. This is an intimate look into Alexander's life especially his time spent in Cape Breton. Great for kids and Adults. Great place to get out of the rain. Explore early Canadian Aviation, learn about tetrahedrons, and maybe even hear some music.

I had no idea that Bell had achieved so much in his life. Our 12 and 11 year old children really enjoyed the afternoon as well. Being able to see his house across the lake was like traveling into the past.

It's a small museum, but really covers a lot about Bell and his work besides the telephone. It's well presented, very interactive and educational. Well worth your time.

I knew about the Phone but had no idea how much other stuff he had done in aviation, streamlined boats etc. Impressive research and development for the deaf.

This is a great museum where you will learn things about Alexander Graham Bell that you never dreamed. You always hear about his invention of the telephone, but he invented so many other things in the fields of aviation, boating, medical, and many others. He was a true servant to mankind. This is a must see when you are anywhere in the area.
