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.

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.
