Canada's Sports Hall of Fame is at 169 Canada Olympic Rd. S.W., at Canada Olympic Park. The facility highlights the inspiring achievements of more than 600 inducted athletes. Twelve interactive galleries—including the Motion, Bounce and Olympic & Paralympic galleries—house exhibits relating to 62 different sports, such as hockey, baseball, figure skating, horse racing, downhill and cross-country skiing, auto racing and football.
Visitors to the hall of fame are greeted by a sculpture of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. In the 120-seat Riddell Family Theatre, an 11-minute film featuring rare Olympic footage about Canadian athletes over the years is shown every half-hour. Items on display include a skin suit worn by Olympic gold medalist skeleton racer Jon Montgomery and golf clubs and trophies belonging to Sandra Post, one of the youngest players to ever win the LPGA Championship. Rare videos, photographs and artifacts from 150 years of Canadian sporting history are on display in the Legends Gallery.
Interactive displays include 3-D hockey, shadow-boxing, rowing and wheelchair racing. You also can find out what it feels like to ski jump or to catch a fast pitch. Videos of awe-inspiring moments in sports history are sure to get visitors' hearts pounding as well.
