It's pretty tough to be a Canadian male and not be a fan of hockey. Even if you have a disdain for the NHL or professionalism in sport in general, this museum will interest you in ways you wouldn't expect.

We spent four hours there on a Monday afternoon and I think we saw it all... its pretty big so there's no guarantee that was the case. It was a good time to visit, not crowded at all so you could spend as much time as you liked at the exhibits that intrigued you. For me it was the section on International hockey (there's a hockey association in Thailand???), the player Hall of Fame section and, of course, the hall with all the trophies, many of which are no longer awarded. I found it interesting that several of the patrons that day were visitors from somewhere in Eastern Europe judging from their speech and they were perhaps even more excited to be there than us Canadians. They were in their 40s or 50s and were as giddy as pre-teens! I'll remember that as much as the exhibits themselves.

It's hard to believe as big as it is but we actually had trouble finding it. From the address you know it's on a concourse but you have to walk through what must be the biggest food mall on the planet to get there and we didn't find it particularly well posted. My wife requires the occasional smoke break, outside of course (you can leave and return freely with the stamp on your hand), and she met folks outside asking her how to get in! Be patient and ask for directions. Anyway, well worth the less than $20.00 to gain entry and a must for fans of the sport.

The Hockey Hall of Fame is a great stop in Toronto. Seeing all of the photos of all of the great players, and being able to have your photo taken next to the Stanley Cup was awesome.

We visited this awesome facility mid-afternoon on a Friday. I have to admit, this was the best time to visit, if you have the ability to schedule it. There were no lines, and we were able to spend lots of time with all of the displays, AND with the Stanley Cup (I even got to take a "selfie" with it).

As a long-time hockey fan, and one that has also enjoyed playing the sport...this is truly an amazing experience. We saw people of all ages (from seniors to young kids) enjoying the interactive displays, and pointing out the players that were their favorites over the years.

They do a great job here with the displays and the presentation of materials (especially with the trophies in the bank room, and the special goalie masks feature). Definitely make this a "must do" on your trip to Toronto...and go on Friday afternoon if you want to avoid the lines.

I am a big hockey fan and I love this place. I have been several times and it is always a great time. The place is full of great exhibits and fun interactive activities.

They are casual and fun. They allow patrons to up close with the Stanley Cup, to touch it. I saw some people even kissing it. I can not imagine the other major sports allowing such access.
