Our island resonates with the voices of generations before us. We hold our traditions close, and our need to share them even closer. Over 30 museums and four National Historic Sites give you a first-hand look at the innovation, industry, and peoples that helped shape Cape Breton Island. Tour the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck to get a glimpse into the mind of a genius. Descend into an underground coal mine with a retired miner at the Cape Breton Miners Museum. Join in a Gaelic milling frolic at the Highland Village. Have a blast at the Fortress of Louisbourg where you can explore an 18th century French Fortress. Lose yourself in our rich heritage. Discover our history.
