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.

You could easily spend hours here reading up all the history and viewing all the memorabilia. Some of its kinda weird.... I wouldn't be surprised if there's a dirty jock strap somewhere on display that I missed. But there's a good interaction part, lots of jerseys and information to take in and the great Hall with of course the Stanley cup. So much history about one sport all in one place. Perfect for families or even if your just trying to kill some time as it's located across from union station.

I had a wonderful time here with a friend of mine when we were visiting Toronto in January. The displays were awesome, and the shooting/tender games are super fun (and definitely not anything that would be free here in the US). It's amazing that we were able to touch the actual Stanley Cup! Every employee we came across was friendly and helpful

This was the highlight of an amazing trip to Toronto. I could've spent 2 days at the hall of fame. Tons of cool exhibits with many that were interactive. Loads of information and history. Every though there were lots of people there, it didn't feel crowded, and you could move freely. If you're a hockey fan this is a must see! It's located in the heart of downtown, near many other great attractions.

The Hockey Hall of Fame in the heart of Downtown Toronto is a must during your time in Canada for sure. Lots of incredible history inside and outside of the facility. Great staff members. In addition, loving the diversed staff members at the Hockey Hall of Fame as well. This is must visit for sports fans across the globe too. Can’t wait to come back for another visit soon!!!!

If you like hockey be sure to visit. Always changing up the showcase display. Entrance is at the lower level in the PATH or concourse. Affordable. No coat check so in the winter be prepared to lug your coat (and your children's coats) Cool interactive games that allow you to email the results to yourself.
