The Hockey Hall of Fame is a museum located in Toronto dedicated to the history of ice hockey. It features exhibits about players, teams, National Hockey League (NHL) records, memorabilia, and NHL trophies, including the Stanley Cup. Founded in Kingston, Ontario, the Hockey Hall of Fame was established in 1943 under the leadership of James T. Sutherland with the first class inducted in 1945. It moved to Toronto in 1958 and opened its first permanent building at Exhibition Place in 1961. The hall was relocated in 1993, and is now in Downtown Toronto, inside Brookfield Place. Members are inducted into the Hall of Fame in an annual ceremony held in November, which is followed by a special “Hockey Hall of Fame Game” between the Toronto Maple Leafs and a visiting team.
