A Rugby Fan’s Dream Museum In Cape Town

If you’re a big rugby fan and visiting Cape Town, then you can’t miss the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum.

The museum tells the history of South Africa through the sport of rugby, by way of more than 64 audiovisual monitors and computer screens, along with several interactive exhibits.

At the interactive exhibits, visitors can test their kicking, passing and fitness skills, all while learning about South African rugby history, which extends back to the 1860s.

Rugby fans will be amazed at the large collection of objects such as the Rugby World Cup trophy, jerseys of famous players, and other much more.

A match centre and “heroes gallery” is found at the end of the exhibit, which allows visitors to watch matches from Springbok history and interact with life-size replicas of current players.

Souvenirs are also available in the Springbok Experience Shop, including Springbok-branded clothing, accessories and gifts.

The museum is conveniently located on the V&A Waterfront, and makes a great stop for families and children of all ages.

You can check out some of the interactive exhibits at the museum in this video.

Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.

Ticket prices: R50 for adults, free for pre-schoolers, and various rates for families, groups and schools.
