What a difference this place is now, that they have moved to new premises. We enjoyed seeing especially all the new memoriabilia of the recent World Cup rugby and especially since The All Blacks won, which is the team we still support even though we do not live in the country any more. The lady was very informative and gave us a guided tour through 1/2 of the place and knew her stuff, so a huge thanks to her. Loved the interactive equipment as well, our son enjoyed it.

This is a very worthwhile exhibit in the rejuvenated te Manawa museum which promises even more in the future as they develop and add more exhibits. I like the way the history develops over the decades and you can see the development to the professional game. It was also great to see various trophies including the Webb-Ellis trophy on display over the holiday break.
