Head to the top level of Studio Bell to explore the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Quebec’s ADISQ Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Collection.
Featuring musical artifacts, one-of-a-kind memorabilia, and tributes to inductees, these collections pay homage to some of Canada’s most renowned music industry icons—from Bryan Adams and Buffy Sainte-Marie to Oscar Peterson and Neil Young.
Established in 1978 and governed by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the Canadian Music Hall of Fame recognizes Canadian artists who have attained commercial success while making a positive impact on the music scene in Canada and beyond.
Each year, inductees to the Hall of Fame in the artist, industry, and humanitarian categories are announced at the JUNO Awards. In partnership with CARAS, NMC collects and exhibits the Canadian Music Hall of Fame Collection, including a display of plaques with winners’ names.
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) is a national, bilingual, non-profit organization with an ongoing mission to honour and celebrate Canadian songwriters. As Canada’s only Hall of Fame for songwriting, the CSHF works diligently to raise awareness of the incredible contributions these exceptional songwriters have made in Canada and the world.
In 2011, CSHF was acquired by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), and in 2016, it found a permanent home inside Studio Bell.
Founded in 1978, l’Association québécoise de l’industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ) is Quebec’s music industry association. The organization promotes the development of the music industry in the province of Quebec and recognizes the achievements of Quebecois musicians. In 2020, the ADISQ Hall of Fame has moved to its permanent home inside Studio Bell as part of a partnership with NMC.

In 2009, NMC acquired an extensive collection of country music memorabilia from Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame founder Gary Buck’s estate. Since then, Studio Bell has become the official home of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Collection.
In partnership with the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA), NMC collects and exhibits artifacts and memorabilia associated with Canadian country music and inductees to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
