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.

The Hawks Museum is seeking the support from the wider Hawthorn community to help with the further development of the Club Collection at Waverley.

The collection has grown enormously since Hawks Forever first began in 1992. The search continues for guernseys, trophies, club publications, photographs, membership tickets and medallions, in short, anything brown & gold that will help us tell the Hawthorn story all the better.
