Very neat and clean and well organized museum and grounds. Bell was an amazing person and this really brings it to light. Staff in the museum were very friendly and knowledgeable. Takes at least a couple of hours to see it all.

It was a good rainy day activity while we were in Baddeck. Easy to follow and tons more than just Alexander graham Bell.

A lot of reading to do at this museum so probably not the best for families with little children. The amount of information about Bell is amazing and the number of photos and items from his lifetime make the information very interesting.
