We were on a ships excursion and only made a photo stop at the statue. It is a nice statue set in a lovely area overlooking the water.

We visited here one morning while staying in Baddeck. Very informative National Historic site demonstrating Bell's love of the area and his innovative approach for his era. Full size model of the Silver Dart is in the showroom.

I never knew that Bell invented so many things. Museum had more than I expected to see. Trip was well worth it.

Been coming here since I was a kid and now have taken my kids here. They liked it so much that they insist we return every time we come to Cape Breton. There are activities for the kids and gorgeous views of Baddeck Bay too.
