Teenagers were happily occupied and actually learned some cool stuff. Adults too. Took a bit longer than expected because there was so many exhibits so allow around two hours.

We never knew that AGB had so many inventions besides the (obvious) telephone. We appreciated his forward thinking!! We learned that he invented various types of ocean & air travel as well as actually working out plans for the first cordless phones!

We were not aware of this being the summer home of Mr Bell and all of the things that he did while in Baddeck. Also were not aware that this is his burial site for both he and his wife.

Had a short period of time, but learned a lot. Great facility in Baddeck. The Parks Canada staff are very knowledgable and provide great insight into our history.

My family with two nine year olds and a ten year old really enjoyed our visit. Seeing all the things the Bells worked on and the questions they asked was inspiring for us. Great displays and setup, nice knowledgable staff.
