NB Sports Hall of Fame launches three new exhibits Jun 15, 2015.

nb sportYou are invited to attend the summer kick-off and exhibits launch at the NB Sports Hall of Fame. The launch of three new exhibits will take place starting at 6pm on Monday, June 15 at the NB Sports Hall of Fame. The Biomechanics and Sports Discovery Centre is in a newly developed area of NB Sports Hall of Fame. The Centre is the result of a partnership with Wayne Albert, UNB Faculty of Kinesiology. This youth-centric area includes a number of interactive stations, much like a science discovery center, featuring the principals of biomechanics and sport participation. Children and families will have fun while learning about our rich sports heritage.

Glorious Victory: Trophies of the NB Sports Hall of Fame will feature the museum’s most emblematic silver trophies including the Ganong Cup and the Trojan Cup. An interactive component will connect youth to the art of trophy making. The curator of this exhibit is Beth Briggs, the creator of the Clarkson Cup.

Occupation Sports Photographer: The Photography of Dan Galbraith features one of Canada’s top sports photographers. Galbraith photographed Canadian athletes in nearly every major sporting event in the last thirty years. A selection of his photographs of New Brunswick athletes is displayed along with the stories that accompany them.

Hands-on activities will be available for children to participate in. The gift store will also be open to the public and refreshments will be served. RSVP to Marieka Chaplin by phone #453-3747 or email: Marieka.chaplin@gnb.ca

The New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame is open throughout the summer from Tuesday to Saturday 9:30am-5pm. Admission is $2 for students, $3 for adults, and $8 for families.
