BC Sports Hall of Fame

ONE OF SPUD'S FAVOURITE MUSEUMS | VANCOUVER



It's tucked inside BC Place Stadium at Gate A.



And it's way bigger and way cooler than I ever expected. Even if you're not from BC or you are not familiar with any individual athletes, the exhibits are really well done and enjoyable. Spud zoomed through each one with much glee. Some of it was a blur for me, while chasing him, but I caught some cleverly designed spaces. And no matter who you are or where you're from, you're bound to find at least some inspiration from the stories of these local heroes...



There is also a substantial amount of Olympic paraphernalia, for the Olympic buffs.
Other reasons to go:
· Air + box hockey
· Giant B-ball
· HD racing simulator
· Virtual sports simulator
· Rock climbing wall, kid sized
· Time your start in a 100 metre dash
· Scavenger Hunt and History Hunt [for the older ones]
· Take a peak into what's happening inside the Stadium
This may be the most underrated kid-friendly museum in the city. For a map and its hours of operation, click here.

Wow. That is so cool. I'm so curious ... what sport? ... when? Next time I go, I'll keep an eye out.
