White Glove Tour – Alexander Graham Bell Museum
A Canadian Tourism Commission Signature Experience! The White Glove
Tour gives you a behind-the-scenes look into the private life of one of
the most influential figures in human history. When
Alexander Graham Bell landed in Baddeck on Cape Breton Island, Nova
Scotia, he fell in love with the landscape. Now you can touch the depths
of his inventive genius. Some of Bell’s items include his favorite
jacket, his walking stick and his personal notebook. Follow the love
story of Bell and his wife, Mabel, for whom the telephone was invented.
Witness how Bell put everyday items to extraordinary use. Pick up his
vacuum jacket (forerunner to the iron lung), model kites and hydrofoils.
In “The Aeronautics Laboratory” trace Bell’s path to flight, examining
propellers, rotors, paper wing-shaped models and items used to build
Canada’s first airplane, the Silver Dart. Hold Bell’s history in your
hands; it might just change your world.
