Tourist Attraction in Toronto: Hockey Hall of Fame
The Hockey Hall of Fame is located in Toronto, Canada; it is dedicated to the history of ice hockey rather than to the "on land" varieties of the game. In addition to a gallery of fame, it is also a museum, where it is kept and exhibited material on players, teams and trophies of the National Hockey League and the Stanley Cup, including memorabilia and documents that illustrate the records and results. The Hockey Hall of Fame was founded in 1943 and had no permanent headquarters until 1961, when it was established in some rooms on the ground floor of the Canadian National Exhibition. In 1993 he moved to a new location in a building located in Toronto and previously belonged to the Bank of Montreale. The new office is located in downtown, on the corner of Yonge Street and Front Street, connected - via BCE Place - to Union Station, the Royal York Hotel and Air Canada Center. Since 1997 the IIHF international federation inaugurated its own Hall of Fame in Zurich. A year later, an agreement was signed with the Canadian hall homologous and from 29 June 1998 the IIHF gallery has its own space in Toronto.
