World Rugby Museum – Twickenham

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has exhibited memorabilia inside Twickenham Stadium since 1979.

An Informal museum was created underneath the South Stand in 1983 before the museum of rugby was constructed in the East Stand and officially unveiled in 1996.

In 2007 the Museum of Rugby was renamed the World Rugby Museum to reflect its growing collection and to create a focal point for the heritage and culture of rugby around the world.

In 2017 the World Rugby Museum vacated the East Stand and was completely rebuilt in the South Stand with £1.8 Million capital investment by the RFU.

Their collection is the most extensive collection of rugby football memorabilia in the world, including over 38,000 recorded objects, 15,000 pieces of archival material and 9,000 photographs, from the RFU collection, the Harry Langton Collection and the RFU Rugby Archive.

The pictures presented here were taken soon after the museum was reopened in February 2018.
