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.

Not exactly a diehard hockey fan, but I still found it incredible. It's a one and done deal, with the history of hockey. Seeing the old masks, helmets, TSN desk, and the amount of activities. There's a vault with the rings of teams, and you can even see the bands of old cups, as well as the true cup itself.

Great! None of us visiting are big hockey fans, but the Hockey Hall of Fame was fascinating for us. Lots of items on display, from all eras - we spent several hours here. Really recommended. The entrances is one level down from street level, you walk past the food court to get to it (we couldn't find it at first, and had to ask). Good that you get a stamp on your hand, so you can go out and back in again - we went out for lunch in the food court (good) and came back to look at more stuff.

A very open yet crowded source of achievement. Stanley Cup right on display. A cool vault to store all the previous precious items. Lots of gear on display from famous players. A great place to take any fan of hockey!

This place is magical if you're a true fan of the game. It has everything you would be looking for. Interactive attractions, unbelievable memorabilia, all the trophies, a great gift shop, amazing staff, ever changing exhibits, and movies about the greatest game. The Hall is centrally located in the city, and I absolutely recommend buying tickets in advance. There was no wait, but you never know. All kinds of food options are near to make a day of it. This is a must visit attraction for any hockey fan. You won't be disappointed.
