Despite universal mockery of 'Canadian football,' nothing stops Canadian sports fans from welling with enthusiasm for their fast-paced brand of gridiron. The Canadian Football Hall of Fame & Museum puts more than 100 years of Canadian Football League (CFL) history on display through equipment, photos and the actual Grey Cup – the CFL's holy grail.
A boxy, column-fronted, 36-room mansion, Dundurn Castle once belonged to Sir Allan Napier McNab, Canadian prime minister from 1854 to 1856. It sits on a cliff overlooking the harbor amid lovely chestnut- studded grounds, and is furnished in mid-19th-century style.
Also on-site is the Hamilton Military Museum, with weapons and uniforms from the War of 1812 to WWI. Admission is free with Dundurn Castle admission.
