Although we didn't know almost all the people inducted here it was still nice to visit. No cost to get into. Sydney Crosby exhibit was good. Also some neat history of Canadian boxing was on display.

Personally I'm not big on sports history, but do love the history of the equipment. The display cases have a fantastic collection of old & new. My sports-fan partner enjoyed whacking a few goals in the simulator. Pretty cool!

The Sports Hall of Fame is located with the Scotia Bank Center. It is free, and gives some background on Nova Scotia's sports history. When I visited there was a special exhibit on Sidney Crosby.

My 15 year old son, who is a hockey player and Crosby fan loved this display. It takes about an hour to really appreciate, with half of the museum being dedicated to Crosby. I'm not a hockey fan myself, but enjoyed the Sidney Crosby display....More

Beyond the extensive Sydney Crosby memorabilia - including his 8th grade report card and his baby bottle - there isn't much there of any interest.
