Come visit one of Nova Scotia’s finest national historic sites. The Alexander Graham Bell Museum!
Baddeck, Cape Breton Island, is where Alexander Graham Bell, mostly famed as the inventor of the telephone chose to build his Canadian residence. Why?.. Here are his own words:
“I have travelled the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all.”
This complex, with its three exhibit halls, contains the largest collection of Bell’s artifacts and inventions, including replicas of the first telephones and a full scale model of the HD-4 hydrofoil craft. You will want at least 2 hours to see all that the museum has to offer.
After your visit to the museum, the surrounding grounds are the perfect place for a picnic or take a stroll along the lake.
