The Chelsea Museum is a fantastic, Visit Britain accredited, attraction that pays tribute to over a century of the Blues. With a host of exhibits, sights and sounds for Chelsea fans, young and old, to enjoy.

The museum starts off by detailing the inception of the club in 1905, the wonderfully rich cast of characters involved, and how a dog bite led to the foundation of one of the world's best football teams.

Throughout our existence, Chelsea FC have worked hard to bring the best talent through our academies and reserves, from Jimmy Greaves to John Terry, Ron Harris to Ray Wilkins, and Peter Bonetti to Graeme Le Saux.

Learn how Ray Wilkins became the youngest player ever to captain Chelsea at the age of 18, and how our current captain, John Terry, worked his way up through the ranks.

Sunny days and sparkling nights, at Stamford Bridge we have had them all in the stadium that remains our spiritual home.

Come and see how we amazed the country in the post war period with an attendance of over 100,000. Learn how a team suffered the highest ever defeat in a European game, and cast your mind back to when a captain's goal overcame Brazilian flair.

Walking down the Kings Road or the Fulham Road on a matchday has always been a special feeling for Chelsea and opposition fans alike.

In a location second to none, we have been glamorous and fashionable in equal measure, and now you can see why. Including the famous 22-stone goalkeeper the crowds flocked to see, the stadium that was visited by the kings of both England and Spain, not to mention our very own King of Stamford Bridge, as world-famous stars and Chelsea fans mingled.

From Wembley to Athens, Cardiff to Stockholm and here at Stamford Bridge, there have been days to savour.

Titles, FA Cups, League Cups, European trophies, promotions, all magical memories that you can savour again and again at the Chelsea Museum, or if they were days from before you were born, come and find out what the fuss was about.

Ever since our foundation, Chelsea has visited many varied and exotic locations all over the world. From our trip in 1929 to South America, to visits to Europe in the 1930s, Australia in the 1960s, the Middle East in the 1970s, to Asia and North America in the current decade.

We have also travelled far and wide in our search for players, from our first foreign player in 1913 all the way up to the current team. We have had players from every continent on earth. Come and learn about them all.

Throughout our history we have had a number of chairmen, presidents, and benefactors who have all attempted to bring the good times to the Bridge, with varying degrees of success.

The Mears family, Ken Bates, Matthew Harding and now Roman Abramovich, whose arrival at the club has heralded the most successful period in our history.

The all-new Chelsea Museum has chronicled the major events over the last 25 years leading to the takeover of the club by Roman.

With a list of honours, our trophy cabinet, a fantastic array of artefacts and football memorabilia that has been collected over the years and donated by fans and players alike, the newly refurbished museum is an Aladdin's cave that will revive many great memories of Chelsea over the years.

We have also incorporated many child-friendly and interactive additions to the museum that kids will love. Pick your greatest XI and see how it matches up with famous Chelsea fans' teams. Look at the greatest goals we have ever scored, and the funniest moments, from our special goals tribute to our two most popular players ever. The greats, Ozzie and Zola.
