New World Rugby Museum to launch in January 2018
The award-winning World Rugby Museum at Twickenham Stadium has moved to a new home in the South Stand and will reopen in time for the 2018 NatWest 6 Nations Championship.
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 new location presented an opportunity for the museum to improve its content and modernise its interpretive methods, says museum curator Phil McGowan.
“The cutting edge new museum will be bigger, better, brighter and more interactive than ever before,” he said.
“It will house the world’s most prestigious collection of rugby memorabilia. This will include 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.
“It will also include purpose-built events, education and research facilities and invite visitors to engage in the game with exciting hands-on interactive exhibits.”
