Tel: 416 360 7735's insider take:

For all its highbrow cosmopolitanism, Toronto is, nevertheless, the biggest hockey city in the world. Even tropics-dwelling nonskaters can find something fun to do at the Hockey Hall of Fame, thanks to great interactive exhibits, which let visitors try to score on an NHL goalie or experience just what it's like to face a slap shot. Hockey pilgrims, meanwhile, can gawk at hallowed memorabilia like historic skates and sticks, as well as the net in which Wayne Gretzky scored his 802nd career goal in 1994 (thus establishing an NHL record for all-time career goals scored, as any local will tell you). The Great Hall, with its glass-encased trophies, including the original Stanley Cup, has a churchlike tranquility.

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 5 pm, Saturdays 9:30 am to 6 pm, and Sundays 10:30 am to 5 pm.
