The home of the Mighty Hawks, the Hawks Museum tells the story of the people that have made the Hawthorn Football Club the most successful club in the last 50 years, 13 Premierships, 5 Brownlow medals, 8 Norm Smith medals and arguably the two best full forwards in the history of the game.

The Hawks Museum gained accreditation with Museums Australia in 2013. At present, Hawthorn has the only accredited museum in the AFL that is open to the public.

You can enjoy a self-guided tour of the Museum with our Information Tablet providing in-depth explanations of the various exhibits and displays.

There are three areas for visitors to experience:

The Foyer

See the magnificent lifelike portraits of Club Legends; John Kennedy Snr and Leigh Matthews, Graham Arthur, Michael Tuck, Peter Hudson, David Parkin, Jason Dunstall and Peter Knights by leading sports artists, Jamie Cooper and Dave Thomas.
