Alexander Graham Bell did most of his famous telephone inventing in the US but he had a summer home in Baddeck where he lived most of the last part of his life, continuing his research and inventing, with the help of a team, loads of other things. We already knew he had done a lot of work with the deaf earlier in life. His father did as well. He invented a sort of written language for the deaf and there's even a typewriter that types the symbols.
The museum has several sections, dealing with various aspects of his life and work. There are loads of photographs including one of him and his wife with Helen Keller and a touching one of him and his wife walking on the beach.
There are examples of some of the aircraft and hydrofoil craft he worked on and there's a film that you can watch about the evolution of these inventions as well as other details about his life.
There are lots of items on display from other of his inventions including an early camera and a phone that could work on light rays. The first cordless phone!
The site is wheelchair accessible with ramps and a lift. There's a children's play and experiement section in the lower level and of course a gift shop. Fees are $7.80 per adult with discounts for seniors, children and groups. Lots of free parking. There's a cafe on the site as well, near one of the car parks.
