Canadian Football Hall of Fame
The Canadian Football Hall of Fame celebrates pros, amateurs, and nonplayers alike. Every year, it inducts up to seven pillars of the football community, who can fall into either of two categories: players (open to amateurs and pros alike) or builders (coaches and others who contribute without playing). As it celebrates these folks, the hall also functions as a museum, stocked with paraphernalia from the sport's earlier days.
Size: More than 30,000 Canadian football artifacts, ranging from helmets and uniforms to trophies and game footage.
Permanent Mainstay: The Zone of Champions—home to 264 busts of inducted stars, which are rumored to come to life after midnight to chat about their glory days.
Eye-catcher: Outside stands a silver statue of two life-size football players frozen in action. One is jumping for the ball, and the other is in the midst of tackling him. A plaque to their left reads "Touchdown."
Don't Miss: The virtual exhibit on how Canada and the United States's football styles diverged, a process that began with two back-to-back McGill-Harvard games in 1874. Harvard picked the rules for the first one; McGill picked the rules for the second; and Canada has been perfecting them ever since.
