For over 40 years, the community has entrusted the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum with the responsibility to collect, preserve, study, and interpret materials that relate to British Columbia’s rich sport history. In 1983, the BC Sports Hall of Fame
and Museum opened in BC Place Stadium
, located at 777 Pacific Boulevard South, Vancouver
, BC Place.
Currently the BC Sports Hall of Fame
is closed to the public due to roof construction at BC Place Stadium, and will re-open in 2011. The BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum office has been temporarily relocated to Canada Place

, and has a featured, rotating display at Science World
that coincides with the exhibit (May 2010 - September 2010).
