The Aquatic Hall of Fame and Museum of Canada (www.AHFMC.ca) / La Galerie de la Renommée et le Musée Nautiques du Canada (www.GRMNC.ca) located in the Pan Am Pool in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada closed in 2006 and the collection was placed in storage. In March 2014 the City of Winnipeg and the AHFMC reached an amicable resolution regarding the use of the facilities and the AHFMC will be returning to its location at the Pan Am aquatic centre.

The Museum is the oldest incorporated sports museum in Canada and has an extensive collection of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water polo memorabilia and art. It recognizes athletes and coaches who have competed in the Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games and World championships as well as important supporters.

The artifacts in storage will be on display by mid-2015 and tour the country for special occasions.
