A celebration of rugby in the birthplace of the sport
The new World Rugby Hall of Fame, based in the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum on Little Elborow Street, Rugby, UK is a 380 m² interactive exhibition space dedicated to the sport. The Hall of Fame includes video archive material, memorabilia and digital installations.
Artefacts from World Rugby’s own collection, as well as memorabilia loaned by the member unions and World Rugby Hall of Fame inductees are displayed, and combined with over 180 archive videos equaling over six hours of available film footage make this a unique visitor experience.
To make the most of the floor area, digital technologies have been employed to transform large wall panels into multi-user interactive projection touch-walls, encouraging visitors to explore the history of the game and select their favourite moments, discover the wide variety of ways the game is played around the world and learn about the 121 member unions from the six regional associations that make up World Rugby.
Within the World Rugby Hall of Fame, a suite of interactive installations allow visitors to select their heroes and see them projected as larger-than-life images on double-sided glass blades.
