Discover Bell's Inventions and Family in Baddeck, Nova Scotia


Alexander Graham Bell moved with his family to Baddeck after their first visit to the area in 1885. Their home, Beinn Bhreagh, was a refuge and a family gathering place for Bell, his wife Mabel, and their daughters. Here Bell flew his famous kites, tested airplanes and hydrofoil boats and surrounded himself with the children he loved so much. Bell's daughters gave his collections to the nation of Canada, provided that any museum honoring their father be built in Baddeck, the town he loved so well.
