It seems like forever since the Montreal Canadiens won the playoffs. In fact, it was all the way back in 1993. Still, Montrealers can’t wait for the day the Cup comes home. For now, we will have to live with the History of Stanley Cup in Dorval Museum exhibit.
It’s a traveling exhibit that will, from now until April 21, 2019, be on display at the Dorval Museum of Local History and Heritage. The exhibit is named, “The Hockey Cup History.”
And it features a variety of artifacts related to hockey. Visitors will see champion rings, hockey sticks, photos of the Rocket, Maurice Richard, and everything about Lord Stanley and more!
In addition to all this, the museum exhibit also highlights Dorval’s hockey history. This part of the exhibit is permanent and will remain in the museum. It’s loaded with fun things to do for kids, such as interactive displays, animated movies and much more.
If you’re up for it, you can even play a game of hockey while visiting. Of course, this is only the tabletop version.
Every month, until the Stanley Cup History exhibit moves to its new location, there will be a hockey-related activity, like storytelling sessions. Hockey historians will be on hand to give visitors more insight on the exhibit. They’ll even have hot chocolate to keep you warm during the winter months.
There will also be a “make your own goalie mask” workshop in December, an activity especially for kids.
And the best part is that the Stanley Cup History exhibit at the Dorval Museum is FREE!
