Owner description: Chronicling the team’s rich history since its founding in 1909, the Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame is a one-of-a-kind shrine celebrating the most storied team in hockey. It features nearly 10,000 square feet of rare, never-before-seen artifacts, as well as interactive content on a club that has built an unparalleled following of fans across the province, the country and the sport for over 100 years. A visit to the Hall can also be complemented by a guided tour of the Bell Centre.

“Well organised museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

As a true orange-and-blue Oilers fan, I had some doubts about this museum. But hey, when in Montreal.... So hubby and I went to check it out. The entrance is stunning with old jerseys displayed alongside photos of every Habs captain, all beautifully lit. Then down short flight of stairs to a replica of part of the Bruins rink showing a display of a famous playoff win (Habs fans - please don't crucify my review for forgetting the date!!) and beyond is where the museum truly begins. Not only does the space chronicle the legendary Montreal Canadiens, but there are snapshots from the other original 6 teams as well as a train car to show what travel was like for the players in hockey's early days. There was an interactive trivia game, a replica of the locker room, and even a vignette where you could take a photo "on the bench"! A super fun excursion and I'm glad we took the time to see the Canadiens Hall of Fame.

“The Mecca of hockey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

You'll see all the greats who played for Montreal, but there are also exhibits of the great rivalries, including the Bruins Bobby Orr's jersey on display. It's amazing to see the contribution the Montreal Canadiens have made to the the world of hockey.

“Well worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

If you are a Habs fan (I'm not, but for some reason my son is), this is a must see. There's plenty of Habs history there, and even if you aren't a Habs fan, there's enough there to keep the fan of any hockey team interested. My son was grinning from ear-to-ear the whole time there, and even this non-Habs fan had a good time. It's a bit expensive for a family to go, but if you have tickets to a game, it's only $6 each on game day.

This is a nice little exhibition that is worth visiting, even if you aren't a Habs fan. Ticket prices are very reasonable, and there are lots of fun displays that make for great photo shoot opportunities :)
