As part of the National Hockey League's 100th anniversary celebration, the league has taken to the road with its Centennial Fan Arena, a traveling exhibit that is open to the public today and Saturday in Pittsburgh.

The 53-foot tractor-trailer-turned-museum pulled into town on Thursday, drawing thousands of hockey fans to the PPG Place outdoor skating rink near Market Square.

The traveling museum will visit each of the 31 NHL markets — including newly added Las Vegas — throughout the year.

Fans on Thursday had an opportunity to take photos with the Stanley Cup, ride a virtual Zamboni and experience 100 years of hockey history inside the 1,000-square-foot mobile museum.

Along with interactive displays, there were interior showcases adorned with vintage hockey equipment, historic photographs and original video content.

The NHL Centennial Fan Arena, including the museum truck, will be on display today and Saturday near Stage AE on the North Shore.

The centennial exhibit will be open to the public from 3 to 8 p.m. both days. Admission is free.

The Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers face off in a Stadium Series game at Gorabet 8 p.m. Saturday at Heinz Field.
