For a town that claims to be the birth of the game, you would expect the town to celebrate it. It's a very small display and does little to claim the sport.

My husband and I stumbled across this museum when we were driving from Halifax to the wineries in the Annapolis valley and pulled off the highway. The hockey museum is in the same building as Haliburton House and both were very well done. The tour guides for both were very knowledgeable, but gave you your 'space' to look around. My husband (a big hockey fan) was impressed by the collection and said that, had the items been in the Hockey Hall of Fame, you wouldn't have been able to get so close to them. I enjoyed the displays dedicated to women's hockey and Indigenous origins of the game. The grounds around the museum are lovely and a nice place for a stroll. If you're in the area, it's a nice place to stop. We were there for approx. 45 mins - 1 hour and then continued on our way. They also have some unique souvenirs (blankets, t-shirts, hats) that my husband picked up for hockey-fan family members.

Enroute from Halifax west we stopped at several towns with points of historical interest. A sign on the side of a building in Windsor Nova Scotia claimed to be the birthplace of Hockey
Small museum but interesting stop along the road to Annapolis.

Since Windsor is the birthplace of hockey, shouldn't you visit the hockey museum?? I learned this fact from the Nova Scotia travel brochure and am so glad we stopped to visit. My family and I enjoyed seeing all the history that goes along with this fantastic sport.

A very good little collection of Hockey memorabilia if you are prepared to part a few dollars of your money. The guide was very knowledgeable and very passionate about the game. We only visited for around half an hour but it's one of the highlights of my trip to Nova Scotia

Best Robert get the guide to show you round - he at least knew how to play the game and explained the displays which might otherwise just seemd like a collection of locker room clothes.

My son and I stopped by here while the girls were shopping and being great hockey fans we were totally immersed in the history. Very well put together. Learned a lot and took a trip down memory lane. Highly recommend a visit to any hockey fan.
