A Day at the Arsenal Museum

Posted on 13 June 2018 by Joe Leavey

Despite a tricky couple of years on the pitch, Arsenal fans stand by their history. They became the first London club to win England’s top flight in 1931 and remain the capital’s most decorated side domestically, with 13 league titles and the same number of FA Cups. 

This history is well documented in the club’s museum, conveniently located by the Emirates stadium, which boasts garb and memorabilia ranging from a sculpture of the supine Charlie George, to the centre spot at Highbury. 

Joe Leavey spent a day looking round, and chatted to Iain Cook, who curated the original Arsenal museum in Highbury when it opened in the early 1990s.
