1-902-295-2069


Telephones, airplanes, hydrofoil boats – these are the results of Alexander Graham Bell’s experimentation. But what about the process? This behind-the-scenes tour takes you into otherwise inaccessible storage areas housing artifacts from the Bell collection. Examine Bell’s own photos, mementos, gadgets and gizmos while you learn about the personal and professional influences that shaped his career. This experience is part of Destination Canada’s Canadian Signature Experiences collection, which shows the world the best that Canada has to offer!
