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.

Beautifully preserved home. Tour was interesting and educational. Will plan to take my grandson there this summer. Inexpensive way to spend an afternoon.

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.
