    My son is a huge hockey fan and this stop was a must. We spent more time here then I expected. We checked out the exhibits and the kids had fun looking at the Stanley Cup replica. The thing we enjoyed...  more »

    Do not rely on the fact that the main entrance is not through the lobby of the old Bank, which has offices. Unfortunately you must enter through the entrance on the left which overlooks a beautiful mail erected with a huge arches very windows. He must also ignore the fact that we should go down to the basement to reach the entrance of the temple and pay admission fees at the box office ($19) for a free visit. The exhibits include a descriptive poster English/french. Casually, the place is very large with, let us say, a maze of thematic sections such as the locker room of players (Montreal Canadiens), masks of goalkeepers that Ken Dryden and Jacques Plante. Most of the objects are related to the national hockey League (NHL), but some are teams from other leagues such as the WHA, and Russian teams. A mini-studio of TV allows you to become a sports analyst for the time of a photo that knowledge will free of charge for you. Section TSN presenting on request the memorials of hockey goals is very fascinating: Sidney Crosby, Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux... For young people (especially), the possibility of launching washers with a true stick on a virtual goalie is well appreciated. There are also a few video games. Don't miss the movie 3D from 25 minutes to see in a well-appointed room with a little more than 100 seats. Realized with junior actors who embody just subtly Wayne Greztky, and Mario Lemieux, this film brings some historical facts of hockey. The tour ends normally in the magnificent hall of the former bank where are inducted into the NHL hockey players: you even have access to the vault. At the Center is placed, the Stanley Cup. Visitors can scroll to a photo by a friend, or to take a picture by a professional on-site. You can even touch the Cup! End of the visit, we go down to the gift shop. There are particularly sweaters of all prices. It is still possible to buy a t-shirt with a logo of his team to a Surprise$ 20-25, the service is personalized to the Fund, but not necessarily fast. A visit from 2:30 that could easily take 4 hours. An amount well invested!

    Located in a Heritage building, the HHoF is a well laid-out walk down memory lane for those who grew up loving hockey.  more »

    We know very little about hockey. We went there based on lots of positive reviews assuming it would help us understand history and rules of hockey. It didn't. We found exactly one little spot about history and nothing about the rules. This venue must be awesome for fans but it didn't work for us at all. OK we did have fun trying to score goals in the simulation game, but that is about it.

    If you love hockey, this place is amazing! I've been twice and enjoyed every minutes of it. My girlfriend, who is a casual fan, loved it too. There's a great mix a historical facts, impressive expositions and interactive activities (i.e., shot the puck, block shots, trivia, etc) The awards section is very impressive!

    Spent 5 hours here! Surprisingly cheap ticket price. Lots and lots of stuff but I kind of wish they told more stories on their plaques instead of just being like this stick was used by so and so. Some of the plaques (especially in the IIHF section) were really cluttered too and could use a redesign. Wish they had a hall of every jersey and alternate jersey they could get their hands on too but maybe that's just because I love jerseys. The trophy room was really cool though and even though the real Stanley Cup wasn't there the replica is completely up to date and is the same material and everything and you can touch it which is a great feeling. I'm told you can touch the real one too when it's there. The respect for women's hockey is really cool too and they're no small part either. My one major complaint is that it closes so early. 5pm!?!? I got there at 12 and enjoyed it so much more than I thought but I had to be ushered out and didn't even get to go to the shop to look at jerseys :(

    You will get an opportunity to see some great art and history in this building. It's a place where a lot of art and car exhibits take place. There are great shops and eatery available. It is $$$ place.

    The Hockey Hall of Fame is a place that any National Hockey League fan needs to visit once in a lifetime. The informative museum section is very entertaining as there are a lot of things to watch, see and play for children and adults alike. It takes about an hour to visit everything. There is also an incredibly big merchandise section where you can get collectibles and memorabilia from all thirty-one teams in the NHL. Whenever I visit Toronto, I go there and buy or discover something new.
