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.
