We're traveling throughout the Maritime Provinces this summer in our RV and this was one of the attractions that we wanted to see. Our admission this year was free because of Canada's 150th anniversary celebration but this museum is more than worth the normal admission...More

This exhibit was much more enjoyable than I had expected. It gave me an insight into Bell that I had no idea about. He was an inventor of many things. Definitely a life well spent. The exhibit was free during this 150th birthday for Canada.
