The Original Hockey Hall of Fame is now located at Kingston's Invista Centre, a four-pad arena complex on Gardiners Road with easy access to Highway 401.

See hockey's rarest and most unique artifacts, take a stroll through hockey history and learn about the evolution of the game and the prominent role Kingston played in its development.

You'll see hockey's only square puck, used in the first organized game in Kingston in 1886, Canada's first Olympic hockey gold medal won in 1924, hockey's oldest jersey from Queen's University (1894) and a salute to Kingston's own Don Cherry. There is also a tribute to five Kingston players who scored Stanley Cup winning goals, Kingston's Golden Girl Jayna Hefford and many of the top artifacts from the NHL's Original Six era.

Visit the William J. Henderson Theatre to see the documentary film "The Cradle of Hockey," the story of Kingston's hockey pioneers, which is narrated by Don Cherry.
