A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION DEVELOPED BY THE CANADIAN MUSEUM OF HISTORY
The sweat-soaked smell of the locker room. The flick of the wrist-shot. The scream of the enthusiastic fans. 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 identity, our shared history. It is a passion handed down from generation to generation, a recreational activity, and a commercial enterprise.
This one-of-a-kind travelling exhibition offers visitors an exciting interactive experience showcasing high points in the sport from both yesterday and today. This engaging exhibition explores the importance and influence of hockey over the past 100 years, and brings the history of the sport to life through profiles of participants at both the professional and amateur levels.
It is presented in a series of graphic panels using photographs and reproduction of key artifacts, memorabilia and works of art. Also included are audio archives and an audio-visual interactive where visitors can record their own running commentary of a portion of a hockey match.
