HHOF is a short walk away. There is no public access through the front doors of the historic bank building at Yonge and Front Streets. For maps and directions from the airport, visit:

Note from Robin : If you don’t feel like blazing through the HHOF all at once, your pass is good for the whole day, and you can exit and re-enter with a hand stamp. If heavy crowds aren’t allowing you to see what you want, go grab some coffee or a bite to eat, and return later. You could even walk to the CN Tower, and tick off another item on the Bucket List.
