To celebrate the opportunity to host this event, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in Calgary has a new curling exhibit called Sweeping to Success: Stories of Canadian Curling. Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame has gathered artifacts and photographs, from many different halls of fame and museums across Canada, for this exhibition which is open until June 2015.
