We had family and friends from out of town to learn the significance of Alexander Graham Bell and the invention of the phone number effort. The hostess was gracious and the facilities were well kept. We had a wonderful time!

Only a little Museum but well worth a small detour if you are in Brant County,this is the home of Canada,s first Telephone Office. How things have come on since those early pioneering days. Alexander Graham Bell was Scottish bye the way!!

We arrived shortly before closing, but they let us in and allowed us to do a self-guided tour. There is so much on display and the information is very interesting. The movie in the gift shop is well worth taking the time to watch.

1.5 hours is good enough. There are walking trails right at the location as well if you want to stretch your legs. It's closed on Mondays and the last guided tour is at 3:45.
