Hidden from the Main Street it is a great wee find. They do charge entry though reasonable. I visited 25minutes before closing so was no cost. Need an hour or so to see everything. A trip down nostalgia lane plus important exhibits. Well worth a visit. Ensures museum stays open too. So support our football history.

Grossly outdated building. The exhibits were ok nothing great. Wouldn't recommend if you only came to see this.

Went in expecting an average experience and was pleasantly surprised. Other than the guy who sold us out tickets, who clearly didn't want to be there, we had good interactions with all staff. Some things are slightly run down or not working properly, but nothing's perfect. Memorabilia was pretty good and the cup was in residence so that was pretty... More

We visited the Cndn Football Hall of Fame on a Friday afternoon in June. It seemed they weren't expecting visitors and it took a few minutes for someone to get us our tickets. We were not welcomed in the least and the staff acted as if we were a nuisance. There was no explaination about the museum and we just... More

The price was good for what you got to see. I think it should of been located at the stadium. I believe they could of had some more stuff there. It didn't take us long to go through there. Not what I expected. The location is very strange.

The football hall of fame should relocate to somewhere inside the Tim Horton's stadium. It's current location has been a poor drawing card for the city and this location could be better suited for a Canadian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as Hamilton is well known for its musicians and studios. Nonetheless, move it to the stadium, it will... More

Great way for a sports enthusiast to spend an hour. Great price $10. And $5. for seniors. Grey cup was there! I was not overly excited to go but went with a friend and enjoyed it. Great staff. Great location, right dowtown.

I had season tickets for the Hamilton Tiger Cats for over 22 years and when I finally took my son to see the Canadian Football Hall of Fame I was quite disappointed with the exhibits and in fact the whole experience. I suppose I expected more but was upset at trying to get my son to feel the CFL is... More
