Hockey Hall of Fame 30 Yonge St., at the corner of Yonge and Front sts., in Brookfield Place, showcases the sport of hockey. The Via RailStanley Cup Dynasties area includes reverent displays to the roster of nine franchises that lorded over the NHL for extended periods of time. There also is a full-scale replica of the Montréal Canadiens' dressing room. Upper Deck Collectors' Corner showcases such items as hockey cards, coins, tickets and other collectibles.
Visitors can audition and try their sport anchor skills in front of the camera in the TSN/SportsCentre Studio (and take home a video). The NHLPA Game Zone allows visitors to go one-on-one against life-size animated versions of hockey's best shooters and goaltenders. Another area is dedicated to various levels of hockey in Canada and the United States, including the various leagues, both current and defunct. The Tissot World of Hockey zone pays tribute to international hockey with a vast collection of artifacts and multi-media experiences, as well as covering women’s and men’s world championships and international tournaments. The Esso Great Hall is home to the Stanley Cup and all major NHL trophies and plaques of hall of fame members. The Hall of Fame also holds two theaters: the Tim Horton’s Theatre shows archival film and video, and the TSN Theatre shows hockey’s first 3D film. The D.K.
