Opened in 1996 and formerly known as the Molson Centre, Centre Bell remains the main venue for sports events and rock concerts. It's home to the Montreal Canadiens hockey team and more than one million hockey fans come to their games to cheer for their beloved team. Most of the big-name musicians perform here as well since the multi-functional amphitheater is equipped with cutting-edge technology that can handle the demands of a large spectacle. The Canadiens recently opened a 10,000-square-foot museum where you can view relics of the team's past as well as a replica of the Habs' 1976-77 locker room. Don't miss the square on the west side of the arena, with its life-size action statues of hockey heroes as Maurice "Rocket" Richard and Guy Lafleur and plaques commemorating the Canadiens' record 24 Stanley Cups wins.
