The Arsenal Museum

The spectacular Arsenal museum at Emirates Stadium is now open in the Northern Triangle Building. Arsenal supporters can still expect their favourite exhibitions, including Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89 and Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971, along with a whole array of newly donated memorabilia.

These include the shirts worn by goal scorers Jon Sammels and Alan Smith in the 1970 Fairs Cup Final and 1994 European Cup Winners Cup Final victories, medals, shirts and caps belonging to David O’Leary, Lee Dixon, Brian Marwood and many others. There is also a customised trophy on display that was presented to the club by the FA Premier League for remaining unbeaten throughout the 2003/04 season.

“Arsenal Football Club has a wonderful history which encompasses time at Woolwich, Highbury… and now Emirates Stadium. The museum offers a chance to take in many exhibits kindly donated by former players who hold a special place in Arsenal’s history,” says Arsenal historian, Iain Cook. The facility also features an impressive Legends Theatre and more than a dozen fully interactive sections based on Arsenal’s proud history such as Championship winning managers, The Invincibles, The Arsenal Spirit and Highbury Stadium.

Former players who attended the museum’s unveiling ceremony on October 12 included Kenny Sansom, John Radford, and Paul Davis who along with Bob Wilson, Charlie George, Sammy Nelson and Perry Groves will be leading the Legends Tours operated by the museum.
