Ice hockey for everyone: superstars and regular players, female players, juniors and special players… The Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame also depicts the great development of equipment and the changes that have occurred in the sport’s circumstances and training. Credit is given to referees, coaches, behind-the-scenes support staff, and supporters. The exhibitions also showcase the sport’s colourful international history.
Ample film material brings back memories of wins and losses from decades past. Visitors can try their commentating skills, inspired by the example of a professional commentator, and choose their favourite ice-hockey-themed music from the jukebox on display. Two multimedia programmes complement the exhibition: ‘The Finnish Lions at the Olympics’ and ‘Rulebooks’. Visitors can try their shooting skills in a goal simulator.
The Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame is one of the world’s six museums that present the history of ice hockey. The museum’s collections of artefacts and photographs form a unique database of the past and present of Finnish ice hockey. The museum’s most famous items are the original Canada Cup for the Finnish champions and the World Championship trophy from 1995. The collections comprise over 25,000 artefacts and 30,000 photographs. The jersey collection has over 700 jerseys. The museum is beside the Tammerkoski rapids, at Museum Centre Vapriikki.
