Come and visit the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum for the ultimate rugga experience. Here you can learn about South African rugby history as well as more about the Springboks. This extremely modern museum has so much to offer and it exudes passion and love for this magnificent sport.
The rugby shrine in here is probably the biggest attraction. It is one of 20 audio visual exhibits with touch screens where you can learn more about the growth of coloured and black rugby before the form of the union in 1992 as well as an insight into the springboks play. There are additional audio visual exhibits, more than twelve interactive touch screen displays, 20 projectors and 64 flat screens all crammed with rugby facts and information.
Garments worn by players are also here for all to see including the boots worn by Joel Stransky when he made that drop goal in the world cup of 95 and the jersey Francis Pienaar wore in this game is also here. There are a number of other jerseys and memorabilia on display.
The best part of all is the 4 trial zones where fans and enthusiasts can practice their passes, fitness, kicking and reaction times with a virtual coach.
The magnificent field at this museum is astounding and is home to a monument of green and gold with life size goalposts. This will also be the spot where the handprints of former national captains will be cast in bronze.
This is the most interactive, interesting and informative museum you could possible imagine and is a big hit with everyone who steps in the doors.
