Hockey Hall of Fame

This museum showcases Canada’s greatest ice hockey players and achievements and gives visitors the chance to play game simulations.

Visit the Hockey Hall of Fame and test your skills at the interactive player zone, find equipment used by legends of the game and get close to the Stanley Cup.

Originally based in Kingston, the ice hockey tribute collection moved to Toronto in 1958 and reopened in the former Bank of Montreal in 1993.

The Great Hall is the heart of the stately building and houses the most important NHL trophies, including the Stanley Cup and Calder Memorial Trophy. Look for pictures of the players, pioneers and officials who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame since its inception in 1945. There are over 300 names. Don’t miss Lord Stanley’s Vault with the very first Stanley Cup Bowl.

Challenge yourself at the NHLPA Be A Player Zone. Use a real puck and stick to attempt shooting a goal past a computer goaltender. Attempt to block shots by animated players, Wayne Gretsky and Mark Messier. Your statistics are displayed on a multimedia scoreboard.

The 6,000-square foot (557-square meter) NHL Zone houses big statues of Canadians, Cyclone Taylor and Ken Dryden. At the NHL Legends section, find the sticks and team jerseys used by Hall of Fame members. The NHL Milestones section celebrates record-breaking achievements. Among these is the 10-point game by Darryl Sittler in 1976.

Be there for the yearly Induction Day, when new players are added to the Hall of Fame during a two-hour public ceremony. Get an autograph of famous ice hockey players while you have the chance! Note that the Hall of Fame is closed on Induction Day.

The msueum is located in the center of downtown Toronto. Brookfield Place is the closest parking lot. You can also take the train, bus or subway to Union Station.

The Hockey Hall of Fame is closed on Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Induction Day. Check the official website for opening hours, as the museum is open longer during summer and Christmas and March school breaks.
