“This truly was a collective effort. Without the gracious support of our dedicated staff and the incredible generosity of viaSport British Columbia, Vancouver Foundation, the BC Museums Association, and all of our partners, our re-opening would not be possible this summer,” explains Nicholas Cartmell, CEO of the BC Sports Hall of Fame. “We also want to recognize the support and engagement of BC Place, at a time when live spectator sports and events are on pause in our province.”
As part of the reopening process and keeping with public health protocols, the Hall has implemented additional safety precautions to keep visitors safe. These include the required use of non-medical face masks, physical distancing practices, the installation of alcohol-based sanitizing stations as well as daily disinfection of the facility and periodic cleaning of high-touch surfaces.
For the reopening, the BC Sports Hall of Fame unveiled a pop-up Sport Fashion exhibit. The exhibit features a size 22 basketball shoe worn by Shaquille O’Neal, Victor Kraatz’s 1994 Canadian Olympic Team Marching uniform which includes a regal flowing cape, and a BC Lions Beefeaters band uniform, as well as 50 other pieces of BC sport fashion spanning over a century.
Visitors can take a trip back to 1979 with It Takes A Village: Celebrating the 1979 Whitecaps Soccer Bowl Championship and relive the magic of that unforgettable season. Our Hall of Champions features displays on our 2019 Inductees, with items from Vancouver’s favorite twins, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, including their gold medals from the 2006 Torino Olympics. If you’re missing the Olympics this year, visitors can see an updated Vancouver 2010 Gallery and experience the games all over again.
The Greg Moore Gallery Experience will also have a new racing simulator arriving later this month. The Greg Moore Gallery has been modernized to pay further tribute to one of BC’s most exemplary sports icons.
