Hockey: More than a Game

For millions of Canadians, winter is synonymous with hockey - a sport integral to Canadian society. Hockey brings us together. It thrills us. It is part of our shared identity and history. It is a passion handed down from generation to generation, a recreational activity, and a commercial enterprise.

This one-of-a-kind exhibition offers an exciting interactive experience showcasing the high points in the sport from both yesterday and today. Explore the importance and influence of hockey over the past 100 years, bringing the history of the sport to life though profiles of players at both the professional and amateur levels. 

"Hockey: More than a Game" is presented in a series of graphic panels using photographs and reproductions of key artifacts, memorabilia and works of art. There are also audio archives and an audio-visual interactive where you can record your own running commentary of a portion of a hockey match!

This exhibition was developed by the Canadian Museum of History.
