How to use our search

- This is a great place to search for broad or general search terms. ie: hockey gloves

Object Type:
- If you are looking for a more specific search, this is where you should start. Items are sorted into keyword headers, making like objects easier to browse.
- Examples include Equipment, Headwear, Clothing, Document, Photograph, Jersey.
- Note that specific object such as Hockey Stick would be searched under Equipment or you may find better results using the general SEARCH area.

- Use this area to search by sport. This is a great way to browse and really get a broad scope of a sport within the Collection. Ie: Badminton

- Using the sliders, it’s easy to narrow your field of search to within a decade. Collection items area given a period based on decades. If you are searching for an EXACT year (ie:1994) it would be best to type 1994 into the general SEARCH area and use the sliders.

If you have trouble with the search, or have a very specific search query that you cannot find in our Online Collections Archive, please feel free to contact Breanna at or 403-341-8614.

The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame & Museum Collection

Our collection is the foundation of the museum as we strive to protect and share Alberta's sports history. The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum houses over 15,000 artefacts in its collection and continues to add new acquisitions through donations. Artefacts include clothing, equipment, trophies, medals, programs, and much more.

Collections Expansion

We are excited to announce that after a very busy 2017 summer, we have completed the renovations of our collections facility! Over the past ten months, the collections staff have been very busy with the sizeable collection expansion, including an inventory of over 15,000 artefacts in our collection.

We have successfully inventoried all the items, carefully packed the artefacts, moved them to a temporary home for a few months off-site, moved them all back into the museum, carefully unpacked all the artefacts, and found them a new location in the upgraded collections room. While we will still have work to do to finish some of the smaller side projects, we are happy to have all 15,000+ artefacts back in their rightful home.

None of this would be possible without the financial support from Canadian Economic Diversification Fund through the federal government and the Community Facility Enhancement Program through the provincial government. We received additional funding from the Alberta Museums Association. We are so grateful for the continued support of these organizations, whose assistance has allowed this long-awaited project to come to fruition. We greatly appreciate all the financial contributions individuals have made to the project over the past year.

Thank you!
