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.

Rated 4.3 out of 5

5 Star Rating If you love hockey, this place is amazing! I've been twice and enjoyed every minutes of it. My girlfriend, who is a casual fan, loved it too. There's a great mix a historical facts, impressive expositions and interactive activities (i.e., shot the puck, block shots, trivia, etc) The awards section is very impressive!

5 Star Rating This is great for a rainy day; all of hockey history is in one building. Allot to take in at once. The Stanley Cup is also on display among all the other trophy's amazing to read all the names.

5 Star Rating Spent 5 hours here! Surprisingly cheap ticket price. Lots and lots of stuff but I kind of wish they told more stories on their plaques instead of just being like this stick was used by so and so. Some of the plaques (especially in the IIHF section) were really cluttered too and could use a redesign. Wish they had a hall of every jersey and alternate jersey they could get their hands on too but maybe that's just because I love jerseys. The trophy room was really cool though and even though the real Stanley Cup wasn't there the replica is completely up to date and is the same material and everything and you can touch it which is a great feeling. I'm told you can touch the real one too when it's there. The respect for women's hockey is really cool too and they're no small part either. My one major complaint is that it closes so early. 5pm!?!? I got there at 12 and enjoyed it so much more than I thought but I had to be ushered out and didn't even get to go to the shop to look at jerseys :(

2 Star Rating We know very little about hockey. We went there based on lots of positive reviews assuming it would help us understand history and rules of hockey. It didn't. We found exactly one little spot about history and nothing about the rules. This venue must be awesome for fans but it didn't work for us at all. OK we did have fun trying to score goals in the simulation game, but that is about it.

5 Star Rating The Hockey Hall of Fame is a place that any National Hockey League fan needs to visit once in a lifetime. The informative museum section is very entertaining as there are a lot of things to watch, see and play for children and adults alike. It takes about an hour to visit everything. There is also an incredibly big merchandise section where you can get collectibles and memorabilia from all thirty-one teams in the NHL. Whenever I visit Toronto, I go there and buy or discover something new.
