A young Harry Kane once wrote on a school work sheet that he wanted to play football. Fast forward to today: now he's one of the country's most celebrated footballers – leading a history-making England men's side all the way to the Euro 2020 final.

From this summer, the Museum of London will celebrate one of the city’s sporting heroes with a new display on the world-leading striker and England captain, Harry Kane.

Through his story of persistence, hard work, resilience, and sporting achievement, this free display curated in collaboration with Harry Kane will aim to inspire the next generation, encouraging visitors of all ages to be their best and never give up on their dreams.

Harry Kane: I want to play football brings together rarely-seen personal items, family photos and iconic objects to document Harry's career so far: from his first club, to winning golden boot awards and being named England captain.

Plan your visit

Kane is renowned for his formidable goal-scoring record, but making it to the top hasn't always been a given. Using personal insights from the player, the display explores the setbacks and successes that have defined the 28-year-old’s career to date, as well as his determination to succeed at the highest level of the game.

Exclusive photography and memorabilia tell Harry Kane's story

Exclusive items of sporting history memorabilia set to go on display for the first time including:

  • Shirts from England, Leyton Orient, Millwall and Tottenham Hotspur
  • The 2018 World Cup Golden Boot. Kane is one of only two British players to receive a Golden Boot at a World Cup competition, where he was named Man of the Match three times.
  • Kane’s MBE, awarded in March 2019 for ‘services to sport’ after leading England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and winning a golden boot award.
  • Kane’s debut England shirt, where he scored against Lithuania just 79 seconds after coming on the pitch.

Alongside personal items, the display will include a changing room space where visitors can listen to Kane’s pre-match playlist. A programme of activities for families and children is also planned to run alongside the free display to engage young people across the country.

  • The display will be located on the entrance level of the museum, at the start of the galleries.
