|About these ratings|
No trip to Toronto is complete without a dose of hockey in one form or another. Although hockey isn't the official sport of Canada, it is the unofficial religion; thousands of Torontonians flock to the Air Canada Centre to support the Toronto Maple Leafs. Even if you're visiting in summer, you can still get your fix at the Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum, just a block or so east of Union Station. This site is a goldmine of paraphernalia, with exhibits including such artifacts as the original Stanley Cup, Max Bentley's stick and Terry Sawchuck's goalie gear. While you're here, check out the reproduction of the Montreal Canadians' locker room and the Puck Wall, which displays more than 1,000 pucks that were each collected from a different tournament.
With all its simulated exhibits, this museum is also a great place to visit with kids. According to one IgoUgo.com user: “I walked through for about one hour which was ok for me. But families may want to stay longer because it's an interactive museum … . It's a great family place to go as well as a great place for people like me who are basic hockey fans just wanting to see some interesting hockey things!”
The Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum is open every day; hours depend on both the day and the season. General admission is $15 CAD for adults and $10 CAD for children (prices are roughly equivalent in U.S. dollars). For more information, check out the museum website.
