Wolverhampton Wanderers FC Museum and Archive

A fun packed football experience for the whole family, the brand new state of the art interactive Museum is now open at Molineux Stadium.

The Wolves Museum is a fun-packed football experience for all the family, young or old. You don’t have to be a part of the Molineux faithful to enjoy the only dedicated football museum in the Midlands. This unique visitor attraction is based on four specially designed zones: An interactive Games Zone, History Zone, Club Zone and the Club’s very special Hall of Fame.

If that wasn’t enough there is a specially produced cinema show; the opportunity to see how Sports Science has impacted the whole of football and a number of state-of-the-art interactive games, including the chance to experience a TV interview from the legendary football commentator, John Motson.

Kids of all ages can be kept amused for hours taking a penalty against one of Wolves’ legendary keepers, before themselves going between the sticks to face some of Wolves’ top past and present marksmen.

Travel through the good and dark times

Travel through the good and dark times, experiencing a very special football story and learn how Wolves have shaped modern football, both at home an across the world.

Reams of paper records, programmes, photos and administrative material remain stored in rented space at Molineux House, the city’s archives resource. Exhibits include a minute book from the 1920s showing that Major Buckley was paid £650 a year to be manager. There is also a taped denial from one of his successors, Stan Cullis, that Buckley had given his team controversial, performance-enhancing ‘monkey gland treatment’, while pictures and documents trace the club’s moves from pitches off Goldthorn Hill, and in Lower Villiers Street and Dudley Road, before the arrival at the Molineux Pleasure Gardens in 1889, the last decisive uprooting taking place with the help, strangely, of the Northampton Brewery Company.
