Amazing museum they have lots of very interesting and unique artifacts and inventions. I thought I knew quite a bit about Alexander Graham Bell until I came here. It has a bit of a strange layout inside but there is a very helpful map and extremely pleasant and knowledgable staff. Museum is run by Parks Canada so very easy to deal with and there are bilingual (French and English) staff on site. Very worthwhile experience and lots of good knowledge about all his various inventions.
We were travelling through on a family vacation and stopped by to see what kind of place it was. We thought it would be a quick stop and we ended up spending a couple of hours here! This place is just AMAZING! The kids really enjoyed it and they have so many things to see and do!! You won't be disappointed!!
