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.

Very well put together. Highlights a lot of history! Many Stanley cups and lots of jerseys and memorabilia. So much to see! Well worth the trip !

Worth a visit if you are in Toronto and interested in ice hockey. The place is smaller than I expected and doesn't feel like it flows in any single direction. Nevertheless, I was impressed with the quality of memorabilia on display and short wait time to get in. Just a tip for first timers, once you get into the building go down the escalator and you'll find the Hall of Fame behind Starbucks (pic provided).

The place was AMAZING!!!! The site says avg of 45min but we spent 4hrs there and EASILY could've spent more!!! So many FREE interactive things to do, so much to see, so much history. Unfortunately we had to rush through the end and rush through the actual HHOF section, but otherwise it was AMAZING. Would recommend to ANY hockey fan!!! I can't say for a non-hockey fan because WE LOVE HOCKEY! What an amazing experience!

The Hockey Hall of Fame is the place to take any lover of the sport. The activities and history in the hall combines fun with education. It has continued to expand its exhibits to include international and women's hockey. I have built up a rather large hockey jersey collection simply by visiting the gift shop following my visits to the hall.

A must visit for hockey fans young & old. Where do I begin, the HHOF is something you have to experience if you love the game of hockey. Being a 30+ year fan, this was an amazing experience for me. The endless exhibitions on display will leave you punch-drunk. I could write about them all, but this is something you just have to go and see for yourself to truly appreciate it. Happy Travels!
