Tourism Brantford is proud to announce that three local attractions were named “Best of the Best” this year!
Bell Homestead National Historic Site
The Bell Homestead National Historic Site was the Bell family’s first Canadian residence and the place where Alexander Graham Bell discovered the fundamental concept of the telephone in 1874. The Bell Homestead is one of Ontario’s oldest historic home museums, with three restored buildings and an eclectic collection of original Bell family artifacts. This one of a kind museum welcomes educational groups, motor coaches, individuals, and offers special rates for groups of 15 or more people.
Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts
The Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts has been delighting audiences in Brantford for over 100 years. Built in 1919, its magnificent design and architecture represents our remarkable past and reflects the evolution and growth of our heritage and culture today. The historic theatre seats 1,125 people and the warm and inviting reception lobby is accented with a full bar.
Woodland Cultural Centre
Since 1972, the Woodland Cultural Centre has been a leader in preserving and promoting Indigenous history, art, language and culture. Their goal is to present, encourage and promote contemporary Indigenous art with exhibits that teach, provoke, and impact visitors. Guided tours of the museum can be personalized by time, activities and tour length to fit the needs of visitors.
