The Arsenal museum at Emirates Stadium was re-opened on Friday, July 8, following a complete renovation.
Founded in 1886, Arsenal has a wonderful history from the club’s time at Woolwich, Highbury and Emirates Stadium and the newly refurbished museum offers visitors the chance to take in a number of exciting exhibits.
Many of the items on display were kindly donated by former players who hold a special place in Arsenal’s history. Highlights include Jens Lehmann’s goalkeeper gloves that he wore for every league match of the unbeaten Invincibles season in 2003/4, Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89 and Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971. Charlie George attended the re-opening and currently leads Legends Tours of Emirates Stadium alongside Perry Groves and Nigel Winterburn.
The museum also features two impressive video theatres and twenty major displays based on Arsenal's proud history, from its formation in 1886 to the present day. These displays include a selection of iconic shirts including those worn by Alex James in 1936 FA Cup Final and the 2015 FA Cup Final shirt signed by the winning squad.
Visitors can also see a collection of shirts, medals and trophies from former Arsenal captain Joe Mercer and the shield commemorating the club’s hat-trick of League Championships from 1933-1935.
The Arsenal museum forms part of the self-guided tour which enables visitors to explore behind-the-scenes of Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal Football Club. The stadium tour includes free entry to the Arsenal museum but should visitors wish to go to the museum independently they can.
The Arsenal museum at Emirates Stadium is situated opposite turnstile E in the Northern Triangle Building, next to the Ken Friar bridge.
