The museum is a fascinating account of Alexander Graham Bell's life and work. Lots of artifacts and really interesting stories. Old filmclips of hydrofoils were really good!

Even if you don't know much about Alexander Graham Bell and you're not that interested in science, this is still a good stop off. Kids can fly kites. People can learn about Bell's interests and discoveries. There are photos and models and videos to watch....More
