A travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History
The sweat-soaked smell of the locker room. The flick of the wrist-shot. The scream of the enthusiastic fans. For millions of Canadians, winter is synonymous with hockey — a sport integral to Canadian society. Hockey offers an exciting interactive experience showcasing high points in the sport from both yesterday and today. This engaging exhibition explores the importance and influence of hockey over the past 100 years, and brings the history of the sport to life through profiles of participants at both the professional and amateur levels.
In conjunction with this exhibition, we are excited to have on display, a unique selection of local hockey artefacts, archival photos, and stories, from the City of Medicine Hat’s Archival, Art and Museum Collections, along with an assortment of objects from the Medicine Hat Cubs history. We thank them for their generous support of the exhibit.
