We visited here one morning while staying in Baddeck. Very informative National Historic site demonstrating Bell's love of the area and his innovative approach for his era. Full size model of the Silver Dart is in the showroom.

Been coming here since I was a kid and now have taken my kids here. They liked it so much that they insist we return every time we come to Cape Breton. There are activities for the kids and gorgeous views of Baddeck Bay too.

This museum was a real surprise. There is so much more to Alexander Graham Bell than the telephone. He was involved in many scientific endeavours and each one is represented by fascinating displays of original artefacts and photographs and full-scale replicas
