  • A nice museum that's not overwhelming and demonstrates Bell's passion and humility. It also shows recognition for the influences in his life, especially his wife Mabel. A true humanitarian and visionary. Baddeck is beautiful and you can see why they chose it as their place to settle. What a life.
  • One of the best museums I've visited and it sets the record straight on just how influential and supportive his wife Mabel was in his work.
  • Not my favorite national park, but still interesting. Can be visited in less than 2 hours. Nice little kids area, and the exhibits are few, but interesting.
  • Remarkably educational institution about an amazing and interesting figure, in a remarkably beautiful setting. Utterly worth the trip.
  • Prepare to be blown away by AGB! You'll learn things you never know about he and his dads' genius.
