Hockey, a sport that defines Canada like no other, has caught on in over 70 countries around the world. More than just a sports museum, the Hockey Hall of Fame is an exciting, immersive and hands-on celebration of the game of hockey.
With over 65,000 square feet of exhibits, the Hockey Hall of Fame offers something for everyone. You'll get to see an outstanding collection of hockey artifacts representing all levels of play from around the world. Participate in hands-on games where you'll face-off against animated, life-size versions of some of the best players of the day. Browse through themed exhibits devoted to hockey's stellar players, teams and achievements. There are also theatres, bigger-than-life statues and a replica NHL dressing room for you to check out. Last, but not least, are the NHL trophies including, best of all, hands-on access to the Stanley Cup itself, centrepiece of the Great Hall. A replica is used when the real cup is 'travelling' outside its home at the Hall.
In addition to its role as a museum of hockey history and memorabilia, the Hockey Hall of Fame has the mandate of honouring great hockey players. Players inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame are selected by a process of nomination and secret ballot by a selection committee made up of 18 persons with knowledge and expertise in various areas of the sport. Some notable inductees include Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Guy Lafleur, and Mario Lemieux.
At the end of your visit be sure to check out the extensive collection of hockey merchandise and memorabilia in the store. You can be sure of scoring some great souvenirs that you will be proud to add to your own collection.

Pleasantly surprised by this museum that pays homage to a great Canadian sport. Wonderful displays and information. Has great hands-on interactive activities too - for adults and kids alike. Best of all was getting up close to the Stanley Cup.

I'm not a sport's or hockey fan so this was not on my list of things to do.I dident even realize the U.S. has a hockey team apparently? However I kept walking past it on my way to other attractions.Im happy I stopped in. I had no idea of the scope and bredth hockey has.It was educational and fun.

If you love hockey, you need to come visit here. The entry is cheap and you can spend hours in here with all the history and information they provide. They have a cool setup where you can experience sitting in the old school locker room of the Montreal Canadiens. They have a vast amount of displays for international hockey as well. Don't forget to get your picture with Lord Stanley and all other trophies given out.
