Even if you don't like sports, check it out!

I don't know if it is always free, but yesterday it was free. My friend and I stumbled upon it and decided to pop in. It was a really interesting little museum!

This was a wonderful spot to visit on a rainy day. Admission is free - just walk right in through the Scotia Center doors and go upstairs. The restrooms are not in the hall of fame - they are on the main floor (if you just walked in, instead of going upstairs, go down the hallway to your right). My... More

Easy to find and quick to visit, this was a great little treat for our hockey loving (Sidney Crosby adoring) nephew. The Sidney display was great, very inspiring. Just a couple tips: the Sidney movie is quite long! My nephew watched it for about an hour but we had to drag him away long before it was over! Also, the... More

This is state-of-the-art museum in the heart of Halifax near The Citadel; admission is free. There are numerous exhibits featuring profiles on present and past sports heroes, as well as a host of audio-visual visual presentations and a multi-sport simulator for all to enjoy. The particular morning I visited there was no crowd which made it easy to see everything... More

Yes, it's free...can't say that too often anymore. The pride of Cole Harbour, Sid the Kids' display is quite well done. There are pics of Sid coming up through the ranks, game worn jerseys, report cards, stats, and the classic- his moms dryer with all the puck marks on it. Makes me chuckle just thinking about it. Many other jerseys... More

I like the Sidney Crosby display. It's such a great tribute to him. I learned lots about him that I didn't know. I like how you can see his old report cards and that his Mom's old washer is there too!

The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame is small, and can easily be viewed in 20-30 minutes. But the price is right-it is free-and it is interesting. Sidney Crosby dominates, and the youth photos-along with the famous dryer-make it well worth a visit.

This is located upstairs in the Halifax Metro Center, between the town clock and parade square. It has displays and memorabilia from various Nova Scotia athletes, from log rollers to horse jumpers to hockey players. There is no admission fee, so it is worth a look. They have a large display on Sidney Crosby, including my favourite item, the Crosby... More
