It's very nice inside, Hearts and those involved have done a great job.


 


Hopefully it'll get expanded (or moved) into the new stand one day, because there is a huge amount of stuff on display that'll only continue to grow.


 


Here's some photos I took. Most definitely worth a walk around and donation.

I'm wondering if this relic from the Main Stand should be included in the Museum?

Really enjoyed my visit, it was however a flying one as I went about 1140 and had the wee man who wasn't keen to sit in his buggy.

 

The pictures on here so far, whilst great, don't do the museum justice, it is a magnificent place and I am absolutely going to go back and properly go round and take it all in.

 

 

1 slight bug bear for the OCD stickler in me

 

Got our lettters to claim certificates, number 208 and 242!

But it's not an issue at all it's a lovely idea and looking forward to adding those certificates to my own Hearts display at (parents) home next to my share certificate.

 

Once again well done to all.

 

 

 

Ps) what was the piece of silverware that Ann Budge referred to in the interviews today that was "black"

My wife and I went along to the Museum and Memorial garden today and we were very surprised and impressed by the amount of information and memorabilia on display in the museum. It was brilliant following the history of the club from its roots to present day. Well done to all involved in setting this up. The visit to the Memorial garden was a very moving and touching experience and a credit to Hearts. A must see for all Hearts fans. HHGH.

Think it was the silver sugar and milk jug now gleaming.

The museum is excellent.  I took my mum down to see it on Sunday as she's a life long Jambo and she really enjoyed it.  She's already planning to go back again, but with a camera this time so she can take some photos.

Go to entrance of museum there will be someone there, you walk along the concourse of the wheatfield stand it's at the end down the stairs , if you manage to go on a Friday you can have a wee peek of the team in training.

 

Maybe not this Friday right enough due to playing away.

How long should it take to get around?

 

Depending on how long you take to look at each object I would say between 30 minutes and an hour.

 

There are 5 'Big Cabinets' with around 30 objects in each.

 

2 Big Display cases.

 

2 Table tops.

 

6 pods.

 

3 Small cases.

 

Plus the info panels.

 

The film lasts 10 minutes.

 

If you don't want to spend that long I'd suggest pick a couple of cabinets and come back again to visit to see some others.

Yes! Used it myself on Saturday fortunately never had to sit on or hover over it thankfully. I have in the past though as the need arose.

I went to see the museum earlier today. Really good artefacts and a great history of the Club. I enjoyed the video too, narrated by Robbo, of course. I didn't go to see the Memorial Garden, will save that for my next visit.

 

Well done to all involved in the creation of the museum, I really hope it's a big success. I went into the shop afterwards and had a chat with the man behind the counter and he said he'd directed a man from Norwich round to the museum, be good to get more publicity so tourists come and visit.

Did you see the programme and invitation for the unveiling in 1922 ?? In the glass case with a lot of other WW1 and WW2 material.

I went along to the museum at lunch time - very warm and friendly welcome, and a must visit for all Hearts fans.

 

I also popped along to the memorial garden to see my old dad's plaque again - just along from it, a new one has been erected to an 83 year old Hearts fan.

 

It read -

 

       "Still watching the Hearts ~

 

Just from a different hospitality suite"

 

 

Wonderful!!

Me too - although I am not ashamed to say that after reading all the heart felt messages on the plaques I did have a bit of a lump in my throat.
