The Arsenal Museum

Arsenal Museum was established in 1886 and has a colorful history that includes its days in Highbury, Woolwich, and Emirates Stadium. The museum features twenty key exhibits based on Arsenal's magnificent history, as well as two breathtaking video theaters presenting highlights from 1886-1949 and 1950 to the present.

It houses a collection of unique artifacts contributed by former Arsenal players who hold a specific place in the club's history. Charlie George's FA 1971 Final Cup shirt, Michael Thomas' Anfield '89 boots, and Jens Lehmann's unbeaten 2003-04 season goalkeeper's gloves are a few of the items on display here.

Several historical shirts are also on display in these exhibits, including the ones that Alex James wore in the 1936 FA Cup Final and the 2015 FA Cup-winning team's autographed shirt. There are numerous medals and trophies belonging to former Arsenal captain Joe Mercer, as well as the shield commemorating the club's hat-trick between the 1933 and 1935 League Championships.

History of Arsenal

Laying The Foundations

A group of Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory employees formed a Dial Square football team in late 1886. In their debut game, they thrashed Eastern Wanderers 6-0 on December 11, 1886, soon after which, the name 'Royal Arsenal' was adopted. A number of Nottingham Forest players joined the team, and it was through this association that Arsenal's famous red shirts were born. This team surprised the football world by winning a number of games, leading to its expulsion from the London FA and the boycott of numerous southern clubs. The team changed its name to Woolwich Arsenal during the same offseason. The team relocated to Highbury in 1913, and within two years of the move, the club became famous as 'Arsenal FC.'

Herbert Chapman: The Great Innovator

Herbert Chapman joined Arsenal FC in the summer of 1925 after winning the FA Cup and two Division One championships with Huddersfield Town. This new manager led Arsenal to their highest-ever league finish—second place—as well as an FA Cup Quarter Final appearance in his first season at Highbury. On April 23, 1927, Arsenal competed in their first FA Cup Final in less than a year. The club won the prestigious trophy in 1930, defeating Huddersfield Town at Wembley. Arsenal's victory confirmed the club's sustained dominance in English football. Chapman died on January 6, 1934, but his death did not mean the end of Arsenal's prosperity, as the club progressed on the foundations built by its late manager.

Post-War Arsenal

Arsenal made a comeback after WWII under the same manager, George Allison, and with many of the same players, but the magic of the 1930s had long ago faded. Under Tom Whittaker, Arsenal won the League in 1947-1948 and the FA Cup two years later. It would be Arsenal's final trophy in 17 years. Following his death in late 1956, the club attempted a few loyal players as managers, but none were able to replicate earlier accomplishments. Billy Wright took over as manager in 1962 and guided the club's young squad to the FA Youth Cup victory in 1966. Wright made way for Bertie Mee, who paved the way for future glory.

The Seventies

The 1970s had a fantastic start and a respectable end, but Arsenal had a bad decade in between. By 1970, members of the FA Youth Cup champion side from 1966 had started to push their way into the starting lineup. They even came close to winning in the League Cup Finals in 1968 and 1969. They made history by defeating Liverpool in the 1970 FA Cup final. Arsenal became just the fourth side in history to complete the Double and the second in the 20th century. Sadly, that was the peak of Arsenal's achievements in the 1970s; despite reaching three consecutive FA Cup finals in 1978, 1979, and 1980, they were unable to win any of them.

Graham’s Glory Years

Graham took over as Arsenal's manager in 1986, the team won its first trophy since the FA Cup in 1979 within a year of his arrival. The 1988-89 League victory was Graham's thrilling championship triumph. The club missed the league crown the following seasons, but it would become well-known as a formidable knockout team. Their remarkable FA Cup and League Cup double in 1993 served as proof of that. Soon after, Arsenal won only their second trophy on the continent when they defeated Parma in the European Cup Winners Cup Final in Copenhagen the next year. Within ten months of the victory, Graham was fired as manager of Arsenal, ending his illustrious nine-year tenure at Highbury.

The Wenger Years

Arsène Wenger was the Club's first manager from outside the UK when he joined Highbury in October 1996. Arsenal crowned Premier League champions and the FA Cup of 1997–98, giving the Gunners the Double in Wenger's first season as manager. After transforming Arsenal's on-field performance, he revolutionized his players' off-field lifestyle by introducing cutting-edge training regimens and dietary systems. He added new heroes to the team, which won the 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 championships in a row. In 2005, they defeated Manchester United in Cardiff and won the FA Cup for the second time. They reached the Paris Champions League Final in May 2006 after defeating Wigan and quickly became one of Europe's most prestigious clubs. On May 7, 2006, Arsenal bid Highbury and shifted to Emirates Stadium. Although Emirates Stadium holds the key to Arsenal's future, Highbury will always be the club's spiritual home.
