Charting football’s evolution, the West Ham United Museum is a worthwhile experience for any fan of the game, not just those whose favourite colours are claret and blue.
An intriguing timeline runs the length of the Museum space, flagging up world events with the coinciding achievements of West Ham United and their headline-making players. The museum centres on the Champions’ Collection, which, with its medals, shirts and caps worn and won by three of West Ham United and England’s most famous names, is a true football treasure.
Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Sir Geoff Hurst’s involvement in the World Cup winning side of 1966 is well documented, and visitors can hear all about it from recordings of the players themselves, experience it with the late Sir Kenneth Wolstenholme’s famous commentary and see it in the form of three winner’s medals.
