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.
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:
See the magnificent lifelike portraits of Club Legends; John Kennedy Snr and Leigh Matthews, Graham Arthur, Michael Tuck, Peter Hudson David Parkin and Jason Dunstall by leading sports artists, Jamie Cooper and Dave Thomas.
Relive memories of Glenferrie, Princes Park and Waverley with memorabilia and Honour Boards from our former home grounds, the Social Club, the Trainers’ and the Past Players’ Rooms.

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.
For information please ring the Hawks Museum on 9535 3075.
