A new World Rugby Museum has opened in Twickenham Stadium’s South Stand, following the story of rugby from its roots in mob football, through to highlights of the modern game. The cutting edge new museum is 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 students to get hands-on with a variety of interactive challenges.

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?’
