We are one of North America’s oldest sports museums with the focus of recognition, education, tourism, curation and thought leadership. We are Canada’s only national museum of sport. We…

  • have inducted 673 Hall of Famers in our 65-year history.

Canadian Sport Heroes Exhibit – Coming this Spring to Downtown Calgary – In partnership with students and leading educators from the School of Information and Communication Technology in Calgary, Alberta. Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame has created seven new multimedia exhibits: Order of Sport Heroes, Olympic Paralympic Games, The Evolution of Ice Hockey, Women in Sport, Mary Simpson Ride Gallery, Glide Gallery, and the Motion Gallery!

These multimedia exhibits will be coming to a Downtown Calgary location in Spring of 2022!

Though our physical museum is closed, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is continuing to operate our online and outreach education programs as well as our community travelling exhibits.

We will continue to extend our reach and create awareness across Canada by strengthening our digital & virtual technologies with a special emphasis on engaging youth. We will strengthen our commitment to community and build upon our unique specialty of curating sports history through the creation of digital content and storytelling and we will focus on fully funded travelling and off-site exhibits, which will be immersed into the communities we live. Lastly, we will do what we have done so well for the past 65 years; recognition. Recognizing and sharing the stories of these Hall of Famers as they step off the podium to return value to their communities, rewarding our country as they “Build Canada through Sport.”

We look forward to innovative ways to connect, inform and inspire all Canadians in the coming months. Stay tuned!
