The Hockey Hall of Fame brings you face to face with the history and excitement that can only be found at the home of the Stanley Cup.
I’ve been a fan of the HHOF for years, so when thinking about the reasons why I would encourage family & friends to visit this museum in Downtown Toronto, it was actually fairly easy!
Fun Facts about the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto
The Hockey Hall of Fame is located in the former Bank of Montreal building at the corner of Front & Yonge.
Not the first location…in fact, the current location only opened in 1993. Originally, the collection was located on the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) grounds in Toronto.
HHOF is open 362 days a year, closing on three days a year. Christmas Day, New Years Day AND Induction Monday! That’s the day in November that the organization inducts new members into the hallowed hall.
Haunted Hall? Absolutely! The tale goes that there was an employee of the bank who was having an affair with a married bank executive, and when he wouldn’t leave his wife…she committed suicide. ‘Dorothy’ is known to been seen in an upstairs window that overlooks the intersection.
Featured story on the Haunted Walk of Toronto, so if you’re looking for something to do at night and want a little more than a basic history tour, you’ve got options!
