There is nowhere in England more important to rugby union than Twickenham Stadium, which is the home to England Rugby and the World Rugby Museum. This is the ultimate experience for the rugby enthusiast. The museum gives a unique insight into this magnificent sport.
People of all ages and nationalities can follow the history of the game from its origins in Rugby School to the present day, can discover why people love rugby from the grassroots game to the elite sport, and get the stories behind some of the greatest players, matches and tries – with a little humour thrown in. Twickenham stadium is the fifth largest sports stadium in Europe and the largest rugby venue in the world.
Paragon Creative was awarded the contract to undertake the design development of the new galleries; strip out, build and fit out the galleries, and act as principle contractor on site over the three-week refurbishment. We built and installed set works, interactives, multiple AV shows, props, object mounts, display lighting and flooring.
Highlights of the refurbished museum now include:
- Play Rugby Zone – take up the challenge of this new interactive area by testing your skills including speed, strength and kicking prowess, to find out “what kind of rugby player are you?”
- A glittering array of trophies including the Calcutta Cup, the intricately, beautifully engraved trophy made from 270 silver rupees for which England and Scotland have competed since 1879.
- Film and video footage allowing visitors to re-live some of rugby’s most memorable moments.
- The world’s finest collection of rugby memorabilia – over 25,000 iconic objects dating back to the beginning of the game.
