This delightful little museum is housed in the former premises of Gilbert (Rugby ball manufacturers). The history of the game and the manufacturing development of the ball are both well told, with plenty of interesting exhibits. Well worth 30 minutes of anyone's spare time.

A lot to see for such a tiny place. Short but intensive visit. You have to go through the shop, so if children with you, you at least have to buy a rugby ball ๐Ÿ˜€
