Where else can you get a pitch-side tour of a major league field, climb a tread-wall or clock your best sprint, and see artefacts from the Olympics and history in motion? It’s the BC Sports Hall of Fame at BC Place and it’s a great place to visit this summer!
Visit the BC Sports Hall of Fame This Summer
Within the last year, the BC Sports Hall of Fame has also unveiled the Indigenous Sport Gallery, celebrating and recognizing Indigenous athletes who have made an impact on British Columbia’s sport history. The Gallery features over 1,000 square feet of permanent exhibit space, and highlights the impact of athletes like Gino Odjick, Carey Price, Richard Peter, Justina Di Stasio, and others.
The Indigenous Sport Gallery celebrates the rich history and many contributions to sport by First Nations and Métis athletes, teams, coaches, builders and volunteers in BC, and attempts to remedy the fact that Indigenous athletes and teams have not been properly celebrated and honoured over the course of our province’s history.
Visitors can read information about traditional Indigenous games; view artefacts and memorabilia from Indigenous athletes in all levels of sport; see a feature on the North American Indigenous Games; and visit a dedicated space, the Circle of Champions, which honours the Indigenous athletes that have been formally Inducted to the BC Sports Hall of Fame.
