Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Well organised museum”
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”
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”
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.

“Nice Little Tour”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

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 :)
