The Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame is housed in and administered by the Suomen Jääkiekkomuseo (Finnish Ice Hockey Museum), a part of the Vapriikki Museum Centre, in Tampere, Finland. Suomen Jääkiekkomuseo was founded in 1979 with the mission to record, document, and exhibit objects, photographs, and printed materials related to Finnish ice hockey. The original Kanada-malja and the Aurora Borealis Cup are on display along with a number of active-use Liiga awards and hockey memorabilia including sweaters and game-used gear from past seasons.

Since 1985, the Hockey Hall of Fame Finland has honored distinguished players, coaches, referees, influencers, and members of the media who have made significant impact on ice hockey in Finland, naming them each a Suomen Jääkiekkoleijona (Finnish Ice Hockey Lion). Each Jääkiekkoleijona is designated with the chronological number of their induction. Including the induction class of 2019, there are 256 inductees in the Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame.[1]
