Visited here as part of a school rugby trip to SA, so we were in seventh heaven! Great historical trip through the development of rugby with lots of incredible people, places and events. If you are into rugbythen this is a must visit.

Took my wife here to spend an hour while shopping in cape town. Great interactive stuff for kids and even had my wife trying to convert a penalty and practicing passing. Worth a visit for any rugby fan.

Great place not only to know about SA rugby, but also about the impacts that racism in general and the apartheid policies in particular had in the sport. First part of the museum features several interactive displays that should please both young and adult audiences.

On a wet and cold day it was the perfect way to kill a couple of hours with two teenage boys. Even though we are not Springbok supporters it's a well thought out museum and was a great visit.
