I was unaware of Alexander Graham Bell's involvement in the deaf community as well as his participation in the advancement of flight in Canada. His wife Mabel also seems to be an amazing person in her own right.

Here we are in a small town in NS and we find a great museum about a very interesting man. I learned so much about the man who invented the telephone but was more interested in hydrofoils and airplanes. Please go, take the kid.

Worth a visit. Did not know all the history about Alexander Graham Bell and his other interests besides the telephone. Also got to fly kites for free. Fun for all ages to do this with a great view of the bay.
