Museum of Rugby

Calling all rugby fans - the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham Stadium is just the place to explore all things rugby. As many as 10,000 objects from around the world have been collected since the formation of Rugby Football Union (RFU) in 1871 creating an extensive memorabilia archive that includes the 1997 Hong Kong Sevens Women's Match Ball, a 1924 Olympics Programme and the Calcutta Cup.

The interactive exhibitions take visitors back in time to re-live great moments of the game, from the very first to the most recent. If you're up for it you can try out the scrum machine, then take a tour of the stadium to get a comprhensive view of just what it's like behind the scenes.

Twickenham Stadium is celebrating its 100th anivesary with the exhibition of the century - running through to August 2010, themes include the great England teams of WJA Davies and William Wavell Wakefield, Clive Woodward's all-conquering England side led by Martin Johnson and featuring Jonny Wilkinson and Jason Robinson, and the 1991 rugby world cup.

Something for everyone that enjoys the game, from the obsessive fan to the mildly interested, this museum will fire up the passion and spirit of this ultimate team sport.
