The Alexander Graham Bell museum is great. Admission is $8 or 7 for seniors. The museum has a great display of his inventions. Plan on spending at least two hours just to skim over everything. The grounds are also quite nice.

This well designed museum presents information on the life of the exceptionally innovative Alexander Graham Bell and highlights his many inventions, including for the hearing impaired. Definitely worth a visit, especially on a rainy Nova Scotia day.

It was raining, so we chose an indoor activity. We made a good choice. This museum is very nicely set up and shares a lot of information about Alexander Graham Bell. We learned things we didn't know and that always makes for a successful morning....More
