We arrived shortly before closing, but they let us in and allowed us to do a self-guided tour. There is so much on display and the information is very interesting. The movie in the gift shop is well worth taking the time to watch.

Beautifully preserved home. Tour was interesting and educational. Will plan to take my grandson there this summer. Inexpensive way to spend an afternoon.

Quaint country homestead house with abundance of historical artifacts and information. If you are a fan of Bell, or just a history buff, a must see. PS: The apples out in front of the house are delicious!

1.5 hours is good enough. There are walking trails right at the location as well if you want to stretch your legs. It's closed on Mondays and the last guided tour is at 3:45.
