World Rugby Museum opens in Twickenham

A new World Rugby Museum has opened at Twickenham with more than 38,000 exhibits in cutting edge interactive displays for group visitors to explore.

Flexible start times are now available for both group travel organisers and educational visits to the museum, now housed in the South Stand at Twickenham Stadium.

The World Rugby Museum is the definitive home for everything and anything about rugby. Featuring more than three times as many objects, the new museum will display memorabilia from around the world and from all eras, making it a must visit for all rugby fans. The move has also been made in time for the 2018 NatWest 6 Nations.

The museum's curator, Phil McGowan, said: “The cutting edge new museum is bigger, better, brighter and more interactive than ever before and will offer groups and educational visitors exciting hands-on interactive exhibits plus events and education and research facilities.

“It houses the world’s most prestigious collection of rugby memorabilia. This includes commentary, film and match-footage from the most iconic moments, memorable tours and greatest players in the history of what is the world’s most dramatic team sport”.

The new gallery will feature more than three times as many objects as it did in its previous East Stand location, covering iconic teams, such as the 1924 New Zealand side, the 1900s Wales teams, the 1971 and 1974 British & Irish Lions sides, as well as the 2003 England team.

The museum can be visited as part of a combined stadium tour and museum package or as a standalone attraction. This April also sees new public tour times with additional tours on weekends and school holidays going forwards.
