Three new exhibits are on display at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, celebrating their 60th anniversary.

Community Hallway, the Hall of Fame Gallery and the Resource Library exhibit recognizes the province's pioneers, volunteers and milestones.

Collections and Exhibit Coordinator, Breanna says it's a proud moment for their museum “there’s lots of milestone’s within the sporting community that are taking place this year and to have ourselves we have to celebrate 60 years of celebrating all of those other sports means a lot to us”.

Highlighting the celebration is the Community Hall exhibit that recognizes the province's top sports pioneers, while celebrating Canada's 150th birthday.

Suk says there is a lot to see “has a very nostalgic feel to it, you see lots of photos of old sports teams and old honoured members and the past volunteers and past banquets and big events that the Sports Hall of Fame has hosted”.

The official launch of the exhibits took place on Sunday.
