Description: FINAL WEEKS TO VISIT MONTREAL CANADIENS HALL OF FAME The Montreal...
FINAL WEEKS TO VISIT MONTREAL CANADIENS HALL OF FAME The Montreal Canadiens organization announced today that as part of the extensive renovations planned to enhance the fan experience at the Bell Centre in 2015-16 and beyond, the Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame will cease operations on August 30, 2015. As a means to offer a final opportunity for all fans to experience the Hall and its exhibits and features in their entirety, admission to the venue will be free for the entire month of August. "In the coming months, as the real estate development projects around the Bell Centre move forward, we will be in a position to proceed with a number of new initiatives, including the redeployment of Centennial Plaza," said Kevin Gilmore, the team's Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer. "This beautiful new site will serve as a permanent gathering place for years to come that celebrates the history of our team, from its greatest legends to its unforgettable conquests and unparalleled legacy. The Hall of Fame will close in order to offer new amenities to fans and clients during games, though we will be redistributing certain of its displays and assets throughout the building so that they can continue to be enjoyed. For those who have never visited the Hall, we invite them through the end of the month to experience it at no cost." Fans who have loaned materials to the Hall for display purposes will be contacted in the coming weeks in regard to next steps involving their return. Bell Centre guided tours will continue to be offered independently upon the Hall's closure, with new enhancements and additions to be announced later in the fall. The Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame is located at the lower level of the Bell Centre, situated at 1909 Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal. The venue opened to the public in January 2010 on the heels of the club's Centennial anniversary, and has welcomed over 200,000 visitors since its inception.

Even if you're not a Habs fan, this is definitely worth a stop. They have lots of unique memorabilia from over 100 years of Canadians history. There is also an exhibit which includes articles from some of the Canadians' rivals (a seat from Olympia stadium, a game-worn Bobby Orr jersey, etc.).

With the Montreal Canadiens having such a rich history, one would think (and expect) an experience that would be overwhelming and mind-numbing. Unfortunately, this is more like throwing a bone to passionate fans, resulting in a very average experience at best. The museum in its current form (it is closing in August 2015 and scheduled to re-open), does have a... More

Located in the Bell Centre but the entrance is hard to find as the whole area is under construction (Stairs leading down in the train station next door are the secret ingredient...). The exhibits are well done - for the kids it may rely a little heavily on history from 1920 to the 60s which today's kids may not find... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write a review in regards to your visit to the Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame. We appreciate the feedback.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
