Rugby fans are flocking to the new rugby museum situated at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa. Fans who reside in the Western Cape will be able to enter the museum free of charge on International Museum Day, this Sunday 18th May and will also receive a free Castle draught to celebrate the experience.

The Springbok Experience Rugby Museum has recently been nominated as potential winner of the International Museum of the Year award as part of the Museum and Heritage Awards in the United Kingdom.

Since its opening on Heritage Day in 2013, the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum has received excellent reviews from young and old, locals and foreigners. In fact, to-date the museum has received 25 000 visitors since its opening.

The South African Rugby Union will now make the museum free of charge this coming Sunday. Visitors will obtain a full rugby experience, be able to play interactive rugby skills tests and also discover the Springbok Concept Store.

The Springbok Experience Museum is open from 10am on Sunday and every day (except Christmas Day) and doors close at 6pm.

The normal entry fee for the museum is R50 for adults and R30 for the under-18s and over-60s. Discounts are available for families and group and school bookings.
