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.

My boyfriend and I had some time to kill, and we had never been to the Hockey Hall of Fame so figured we’d try it out. Since we just walked in, we didn’t have coupons or anything, and we hesitated because it was $20 each and we weren’t sure how much we’d like it. We paid anyhow and were actually quite surprised at how much we did like it. There was so much history about hockey (and since we are Maple Leaf Fans, it was interesting) and also lots of interactive things to do and it was definitely neat seeing the Stanley Cup. I likely wouldn’t come back anytime soon since we’ve seen it all now, but it was a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Great way to spend some time in downtown Toronto. They have an awesome inventory of hockey paraphernalia including NHL teams as well as international clubs. They have inactive games if you want to assess your goal tending skills. There are several very interesting videos that include interviews with players telling tales of how things used to be. Any hockey fan would enjoy time spent there.

Great memorabilia. I've read some reviews that said they only spent half hour here..... then they weren't true hockey fans! My son and I spent over 2 hours here and still had a ton of information to take in! They also have a few interactive games here as well which are free to play. We absolutely loved it! (Didn't hurt that the Stanley Cup was on display when we went)

The history in this place is astonishing. The interactive games are fun and if there is a line up people move through it very fast. And they are worth the wait. The 3D movie was fun. My kids loved it. Enjoy!!

Honor the achievements of some of the greatest stars in hockey at this shrine to Canada's national sport. This museum presented all a hockey-fan would love to see from the gear of the most famous hockey players in history to the award cups and even a mock-up locker room. It had much more, including information on women players, league players and players of color. There is no street level access and no signs from the street that guide you to the entrance. The entrance is underground via the PATH. This place is great! We had 1.5 hours but I could have spent a day.
