A new World Rugby Museum has opened, following the story of rugby from its roots in mob football, through to highlights of the modern game. The cutting edge new museum is now bigger, better, brighter and more interactive than ever before. Available in conjunction with stadium tour and free educational workshop, this makes a visit to Twickenham Stadium ideal for any school trip.
The World Rugby Museum provides an opportunity for visitors to get hands-on with a variety of interactive challenges. Rugby players come in all shapes and sizes, from powerful centres, to strong forwards, speedy wingers and agile full-backs. Visitors can test their kicking, speed, agility, power, strength and endurance in the World Rugby Museum’s Play Rugby interactive zone to find out ‘What Kind of Rugby Player Are You?’
Want to find out what it’s like to be an elite rugby coach, referee or physiotherapist? In the Rugby Pathways interactive you can hear from some of the experts supporting England Rugby behind the scenes on their exciting careers and how you can get involved too. Other interactive exhibits allow visitors to test out their sports commentary skills and to choose their ultimate World Fifteen rugby team.
