New Zealand Rugby Museum

Rugby is our national sport and the sole subject of the New Zealand Rugby Museum in central Palmerston North. Here, the heritage and folklore of the game take centre stage, along with the stories of some of the sport’s greatest heroes.

The museum houses more than 40,000 pieces of rugby memorabilia, from coins and whistles to the very first All Black jersey and oldest rugby ball. The treasured First XV represents 15 of the most significant rugby mementoes on earth.

The legendary boot of Don Clarke, still caked with dirt from Lancaster Park - is on display here, dating back to his epic matches against the Springboks. A cap from the early ‘Native’ tour to Great Britain is one of only four in existence, as most were buried with their Maori owners. A ball from the All Blacks’ tour of California, promoting the sport, is signed by by the team, who dominated the American side in San Francisco. A stuffed kiwi and its wooden travel case was once the mascot of the ‘Invincibles’ All Blacks team on their tour of France and Great Britain.

There are four different zones inside the rugby museum. Rugby Relics is a decade by decade historical record of the sport in New Zealand, outlining how it has shaped the nation and continues to do so. The Discovery Library is a meditative place for researchers to delve into archives, or material from individual collections. Rugby Tribes is a dynamic area devoted to the diversity of customs and cultures that surround rugby. And the Have a Go section is an interactive place where you can test your ball skills with game based challenges - leaping, kicking and tackling, and seeing how you stack up against some of history’s greatest players.

Recently upgraded for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the museum is a place to experience sporting culture in all its glory - the first national rugby museum in the world and recognised as an important institution and resource.


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.
