Hockey Hall of Fame
Hockey Hall of Fame is the place where you can test your hockey trivia skills or goalie reflexes. The hall, located in Brookfield Place, features an interactive, hands-on account of the evolution of Canada's game. It's a trip down the sport's memory lane, fueled by displays, trophies, memorabilia, movies, and video games. While you're there, you can get a souvenir photo taken of yourself beside the Stanley Cup trophy. Facilities include the Spirit of Hockey store full of collectibles.
I was so excited to go to the HHF being a devoted hockey fan. There was so much to see and learn. Loved the games. especially the trivia game which I was terrible at! Also loved the chance to call a play and pretend to be Joe Benenati. Also loved the trophy room and the chance to get my picture taken with the cup with my own camera instead of having to buy their pictures which so many other museums do. Loved this museum.
As a huge hockey fan, visiting the HHOF was an absolute blast! The museum had more artifacts than I have ever seen in any Hall of Fame, from the Canadiens locker room to historic jerseys and pucks to, of course, the Stanley Cup. As a Blue Jackets fan, I was upset that there was not more Columbus stuff in the gift shop; that did not take away from the fact I had a better time than I ever did at any Hall of Fame! A recommendation for anyone, whether or not they're hockey fans!
We did enjoy our time here. I kind of made a bee-line to the cup, which I highly doubt is the real thing--ever. All of the other trophies and exhibits are under glass... And the same boy who was taking photos was 'guarding' it :) But, oh well, it is fun to put the cheesy white gloves on and pose in front of it! Check with your hotel for coupons, we saved $18 with "buy and adult/Child gets in free"
I probably would not see the movie again, unless you are fans of the 2 teams who battled for the cup in 2007. We also did not play the interactive games, I think it was extra$$.
By the way, save yourself some embarrasment, the entrance is UNDER the building, off Front Street--in the BCE Place... not up the main front steps...oops!
ohmigosh when we went to canada for the first time i was overwhelmed wwith things to do but the only thing that i really wanted to do was go and see the Hockey Hall of Fame. And i loved it i would totally tell everyone to go there.
Even a modest hockey fan can appreciate the exhibits and displays. Foot traffic moves pretty smoothly, even for families with strollers. Room setup was easy to navigate and offered endless photo opportunities.
The room housing the Stanely Cup was by far the centerpiece with the brilliant stained glass dome and other noteworthy trophies on display. An authentic Canadiens locker room, the net The Great One scored his 802nd career goal, other must-see stops.
Most interesting room housed the interactive displays where children of all ages can attempt to score or defend goals against video opponents. A bit of a break from simply filing past and observing the jerseys and equipment in the other displays.
Gift shop had a wide variety of offerings from the simple souvenirs to licensed team jerseys. All in all an unforgettable place within walking distance of our hotel.
I am not an avid Hockey fan but i really did enjoy this museum with my special friend Garry. Only Canada can do it up something great. Nice place to visit, especially if ur an avid extreme Hockey fan:D!!! Awesome!!!
we enjoyed walking around and seeing all the different hockey jerseys from different countries and olympics. the best was standing with the stanely cup. the games were fun as well. it was in kind of a weird location... just keep following the signs.
There is nothing not to like. IT'S THE HALL! If you are a hockey fan on any level, you will be fascinated. All of the exhibits, the reproducted locker room, the interactive games... All leading to The Cup. I've been to the Hall a few times. And every time, some kind of awe comes over me when I walk up the stairs and see the dome. Then all of the trophies and the Hall of Fame wall come into view. There in the center, Lord Stanley's Cup. Off to the side, a bank vault with the original cup and the excess rings. I think I could go every day of my life and still find something new to marvel.
