The Hawks Museum tells the story of the Hawthorn Football Club. It explains the rise from a small suburban club in 1902 to become one of the powers of the AFL. Some of the highlights that can be seen are the Premiership exhibits, the trophies, the guernsey collection, the team photos and game day highlights on the big screen. The large portraits of the Club Legends are unique to this museum. You can learn more about the people who made the Club what it is today by using our new Information Tablets.
