World Rugby Museum

The World Rugby Museum and Stadium Tours

The World Rugby Museum is the ultimate visitor experience for the world rugby enthusiast.

Twickenham is the home of England rugby and also the World Rugby Museum, the finest collection of rugby memorabilia in the world. The Museum opened in 1996 and takes visitors through the history of the sport from its origins to the present day.

More than just a collection of interesting artefacts, the World Rugby Museum is an inspirational journey through the history of the ultimate team game.

Core Values: The Life and Work of Gerald Laing

Gerald Laing first made his name in the 1960s among a group of emerging American pop-artists that included Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana and Jim Rosenquist. In later years he turned his hand to sculpture and left his imprint all over Twickenham Stadium in the shape of 'The Four Players' and the monumental 'Core Values' line-out sculpture that stands outside the stadium.

The exhibition Core Values: The Life and Work of Gerald Laing runs throughout the QBE Internationals and 2014 RBS 6-Nations period. On public display for the first time will be a selection of Gerald's conceptual drawings and the actual resin moulds used to cast the five large scale players' heads from the Core Values sculpture, which visitors will be invited to touch and feel.

If you arrive early and would like to view the Museum before the Stadium Tour, please be forewarned that you will have to walk between the two sites and return in time for the Stadium Tour. It is most convenient to visit the Museum at the end of the Stadium Tour.
