Canada is notorious for its love of hockey, and the hall of fame lives up to expectations. It is interesting even if you don't follow the sport, with interactive exhibits and lots to see.Recommended for:

If you love hockey, you gotta go to the Hockey Hall of Fame. It's got tons of memorabilia and equipment, NHL trophies (including the Stanley Cup, when its not travelling), even a replica of the Canadiens dressing room. Of course, there also are bios/info on inductees too. Almost best of all, there are areas where you can shoot pucks at a computer simulation of Ed Belfour. Or switch it up in another area where you can play goalie against a computer simulated Wayne Gretsky and Mark Messier. Any way you cut it, so fun!Recommended for:

The Temple of Hockey is dedicated to the achievements of all the greats of Hockey. It is located in a 2 story location with the lower floor being dedicated to players and represented with Jerseys and memorabilia. The upper floor at street level is resigned to the great trophies which honor all of these achievements and in my opinion are the best looking trophies out there with the Stanley Cup being the greatest of those achievements. There was a cool area for kids where they can play goalie or shoot on goal vs a Large screen TV and computer with the goalie section being the coolest because it shoots real pucks at you. Don'y worry, you won't get hurt. Hockey is the only sport you will have teenage girls as fans lining up with cell phone in hand to take pictures of each other acting like one of the players. Overall the location is not very big and you can easily do it in an hour. Cost of our visit $18 per adult. $$Recommended for:

We were here for our 25th anniversary, yep Jays/Yankees games and a trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame! It's a place every hockey fan should visit at least once in their life. They have a theatre where they showed the LA Kings road to the Stanley Cup. I loved the replica of the Habs locker room with Foster Hewitt and Dick Irvin calling games on a black and white TV. Of course the best part is touching the Stanley Cup! I loved the Spirit of Hockey store, they have a fabulous selection of souvenirs. Our trip ended with a visit to Niagara Falls :)

Growing up in Iowa, my parents would occasionally take us to the "Big City" - Minneapolis to see the old Minnesota North Stars Hockey Team (now the Dallas Stars) play. Those were the days of Jude Drouin, Jean-Paul Parise, Danny Grant, Bill Goldsworthy, and of course Gump Worsley (one the last goalies to go without a mask). My fondest game memory was watching a Yvan Cournoyer (Montreal) slap shot rip Cesar Maniago's mask off and throw him into the net at the same time. Wow.
Anyway, I still enjoy watching hockey (especially in Canada during the Stanley Cup) and going to an occasional San Jose Sharks game, but of course it isn't the same.
But besides endless viewing of "Slap Shot" in which I can quote most of the movie lines (Gloves off, stick down, he challenged the Chiefs!), I know a good bar here, the Palm Isle....), there is a hockey mecca - The Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto (and especially since Maple Leaf Gardens and the Forum in Montreal are gone). It's a well organized museum in a very handsome domed building. And it's worth every penny of the admission price.
And I got to touch the actual Stanley Cup! And all the memoribilia and other trophies are cool too.

If you like old school hockey, this is the place to visit! Lots of memorabilia from days of past but also from present stars. Love the old dressing room from the Montreal Canadians. And when you start adding your own commentary to classic hockey scenes, it is difficult to stop......drop the puck and go!!!!!

A former Bank of Montreal Building (1886). This richly embellished building with an impressive stained glass dome opened as the Bank of Montreal's local headquarters. It survived the Great Fire of 1904 and is incorporated into BCE Place as the location of Canada's "Hockey Hall of Fame".
