Some unexpected history took place in this mostly forgotten corner of Canada, as telecommunication history was made. It is one of the more engaging National Historic Sites, especially for those who have been to many and seen a lot of the same aspects of history. This one incorporates the history of science and does so well.
It is a small exhibit but it explains well the challenges that Marconi faced when he tried to send his signal across the Atlantic Ocean. We visited with our five kids and they all learned something. It is only opened from 1 July to 31 Aug.
